pramati@macon.comMarch 8, 2012 

Actor Clint Eastwood has finished shooting scenes for "Trouble with the Curve" at the Cheers tavern.

He left the tavern about 4:25 p.m. and stopped for a few moments to have a picture taken with a fan.

From Cheers, he was headed back to Luther Williams Field. Just before 5 p.m., Macon Mayor Robert Reichert, commission Chairman Sam Hart and others were at the entrance to Central City Park, waiting to see Eastwood. About 5:25, they shared a few minutes with the actor.

Eastwood walked in to the Cheers bar about 2:15 p.m. wearing a jacket similar to a letterman's jacket along with a cap and glasses. Cheers arose from about 75 people who have gathered at the site -- some of whom arrived before 5 a.m. this morning -- as Eastwood walked in.

He smiled and make a gesture with his hand as if he were shooting a gun.

A helicopter carrying actor Clint Eastwood touched down in a softball field at Central City Park just after 12:30 p.m.

Minutes later, Eastwood left the park, making his way to the tavern.

Shortly after 1:30 p.m., another actor who apparently will play a bartender during afternoon filming arrived at the tavern.

Dele Reichert, the wife of Macon Mayor Robert Reichert, entered Central City Park with her sister just as Eastwood was landing. She said she got to wave at Eastwood, and he waved back.

Macon police said about 30 people had tried to enter the park today, but all of them were turned away without incident.
