Dunwoody police said Eastwood signed three baseballs for officers while filming the upcoming movie "Trouble with the Curve" with Justin Timberlake and Amy Adams in April, and one of the balls will be put on eBay to benefit Special Olympics of Georgia, WXIA-TV, Atlanta, reported Monday.

"We approached him about signing baseballs for the Special Olympics work that we do at the police department, and he gladly did," Dunwoody police Sgt. Fidel Espinoza said.

"He was just very down to earth, very approachable," Espinoza said. "We were most impressed with that."

Espinoza said Eastwood also agreed to pose for pictures with officers.

"He began talking to us about his work as the honorary chair of the National Law Enforcement Museum and Monument in Washington," the sergeant said.

Police said the ball will come with a "certificate of authenticity" signed by Dunwoody police Chief Billy Grogan.
