It took 32 years, but they came. On August 12, 2021, Major League Baseball played its very first official match at Field of Dreams. Originally built in a cornfield in Dyersville, Iowa for filming in the 1989s Dream field, the beautiful little baseball diamond became a tourist attraction, a beloved symbol of the timeless power of baseball and finally the site of a regular season game between the New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox.
The game was originally scheduled for summer 2020, then a year delayed due to Covid. When it finally went off, it was worth the wait. Instead of the usual team introductions, the game began with a unique sequence like something out of a movie. Dream field‘star Kevin Costner was ready to tell a video about the game and the field and what it means to people, then appeared in person to step out of the cornfield and into the dream field in the same way as the White Sox did in the film. After going to the diamond, he returned to the field, where all the players from both teams appeared, almost like magic, out of the corn.
It was a pretty surreal and beautiful scene. After all the players were gathered on the diamond, Costner gave a moving speech to the crowd. The whole thing is pretty remarkable, to be honest; far more impressive and beautiful than it had any right to be. You can see the full opening to the game below:
If that scene makes you understandably crying and makes you in the mood to see again Dream field, it’s currently being streamed Peacock.
