During yesterday’s throwback MLB game, actor Kevin Costner got back to the infamous Field of Dreams recording location for a magical evening of baseball. Costner starred as Ray Kinsella in the 1989 games drama, Field of Dreams, which is based on author W.P. Kinsella’s 1982 novel, Shoeless Joe. The film got positive surveys upon release and proceeded to be nominated for three Academy Awards. In 2017, the movie was chosen for preservation in the U.S. National Film Registry.
As Yahoo Entertainment reports, Costner got back to the Field of Dreams shooting location on August 12 for a magical evening of major league baseball. Costner filled in as the master of function for the matchup that saw the Chicago White Sox take on the New York Yankees in the MLB’s first-historically speaking regulation game. The game was held at the 1989 movie’s recording location, which is essentially known as the Field of Dreams outside of Dyersville, Iowa. Look at the photograph from Yahoo Entertainment’s Twitter account of Costner standing on the field underneath:
The 66-year-old Costner appeared to be practically astounded as he arose out of the cornfields onto the baseball diamond that housed more than 7,000 awaiting fans. Costner and the remainder of the audience would proceed to watch a baseball game that appeared to be straight out of a movie, with Chicago’s Tim Anderson taking out a walk-off two-run homer in the lower part of the 10th inning that immediately set off firecrackers and the fans into hysterics as the White Sox dominated the match 9-8. At the point when Costner had first stepped on the field, all he could assemble was a soft, flabbergasted, “goodness,” and the appeared to impeccably summarize the whole evening.
Costner and baseball go far back, with the veteran actor starring in three total baseball movies all through his career, which incorporates 1988’s Bull Durham and 1999’s For the Love of the Game. Costner is as much a part of the game as the notorious cornfield baseball diamond. Field of Dreams is famous for making even the manliest of men sob, and watching Costner venture back onto the field nearly had that same impact.
