Mr. Costner is about to create some jobs. How? Well, let me tell you: He’s the “primary owner” of a minor league baseball team that’s going to start playing in Zion, Ill., in 2010 and the little organization is going to create something like 300 jobs.

Oh, and the fans get to choose the name of the team in some type of contest. Perhaps there will be an online vote or some such thing.
Here’s a few ideas: Wombats, Chupacabras or the Yetis.
