Major League Baseball is hosting its “Field of Dreams Game” between the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox tonight (August 12) in Dyersville, Iowa.
Tonight’s game is a nod to the classic 1990 film starring Kevin Costner. Per CBS Sports, “The thrust of the event is that the Yankees and White Sox will play on a field not far from the location of the titular field — the diamond that Costner’s farmer character carved out of his corn field at great personal risk and expense, all at the heed of a spectral whisper: ‘If you build it, he will come.'”
In the lead-up to the game, Costner actually visited the “Field of Dreams” and his emotional reaction was captured by MLB and shared to their YouTube channel.
“Wow. Feels perfect. Every bit of it,” said Costner.
The “Field of Dreams Game” airs live on Fox beginning at 7 PM ET.
