Field Of Dreams Newsbeat

Saturday, April 04, 2015

Get ready for Opening Day with MLB players reciting the ‘Field of Dreams’ speech | MLB.com

It’s now been twenty years since my father passed. Although I know the movie is a little hoke, I still get choked up when Ray asks his father to play catch. 

You know the “Field of Dreams” speech in your bones. You’ve recited it hundreds of times in the mirror, on your way to work, when lying in bed, wishing you could have a catch in the backyard with Dad. If you haven’t already done it, you’ve at least long considered getting a “The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball,” tattoo down your spine.

Well, Major League players are just like you. They grew up on the game and have probably seen “Field of Dreams” so many times, they see when they close their eyes. And today, they showed that off by reciting Terrence Mann’s famous speech.

So sit back, close your eyes and dream of magical cornfields.
