If you build it, he will come.
A baseball park in Dyersville, Iowa, got a visit from a very special person this week: Kevin Costner.
The actor, who starred as Ray Kinsella in the classic 1989 film "Field of Dreams," toured the location of the "Field of Dreams" game before the Yankees and White Sox play there on Thursday.
The Iowa field where the game is set to be played is actually a recreation of the film's ballpark, as the original location is hardly Major League worthy. But, the real location is nearby, and the hope is that the recreated version will have a similar ambiance amid the cornfields.
Video shows Kevin looking around in astonishment at the recreated field, and he makes it clear that the portrayal is accurate.
"Wow," Kevin said in a video released by Major League Baseball. "Feels perfect. Every bit of it."
The original location is now a popular tourist destination. During his trip to Iowa, Kevin returned to the real "Field of Dreams" to appropriately play catch.
While there, Kevin spoke to Bob Costas for a video with MLB Network.
"This whole cycle just replays itself, just like the people who will continue to come out here with their children and kind of throw the ball," he said. "The biggest names in sports have somehow found themselves drifting here… There's a little bit of a mecca here."
Keeping things in perspective, he added, "It's certainly not Yankee Stadium, it's not Fenway [Park,] it's not Wrigley [Field,] but there's something simpler about this thing, and there's a gentle call to come here."
