The Black Hills Pioneer reports that the 1995 15-passenger Chevy Blue Bird will be used to transport Little Leaguers, the high school team and the American Legion and VFW teams.
Original Deadwood Tour Manager Jan Van Tassel says the donation is appropriate for Costner, who's made movies about baseball and owns businesses in South Dakota.
Association vice president Bob Nelson Jr. says the actor's representative in Deadwood had heard the association needed a vehicle and contacted Costner. Costner, who owns a casino in Deadwood, then offered the bus.
Nelson tells the Rapid City Journal that the bus will be helpful, as the association travels often to tournaments on the eastern part of the state.
