If you build it, they will come. This is the famous replica of the classic baseball movie, and last night’s fans weren’t the only ones coming. Kevin Costner himself stepped out of a cornfield and introduced the ball game with a moving speech.
Here is the thrilling intro to the game Field of Dreams in which Costner, the New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox take the diamond:
Inspired by the 1989 film, Major League Baseball built a temporary 8,000-seat baseball stadium on the farm in Dyersville, Iowa, where the film was filmed. The New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox played a true professional MLB game on Thursday.
So who won ? Under the beautiful Iowa night sky, Tim Anderson finished the ninth inning by crushing one of several home runs in the cornfield, winning the game 9-8 for the White Sox.
The match was postponed from 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, so the event and its opening ceremony took on added intensity as an opportunity for 7,832 people to come together and enjoy the sheer fun. of a ball game.
Written and directed by Phil Alden Robinson and based on WP Kinsella’s Shoeless Joe novel, Oscar-nominated Field of Dreams starred Costner as a farmer who hears voices in his head telling him to plow his cornfield into a baseball field. The cornfield-ballfield draws the minds of baseball players involved in World Series match-fixing in the infamous 1919 Black Sox Scandal.
The MLB has promised a return to Iowa in 2022, although the current disruption caused by theis a stark warning that the pandemic is far from over.
