If you build it, he will come!
Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella takes a leap of faith in building a baseball field on his Iowa corn farm when he hears a voice tell him, “If you build it, he will come.” When the field produces the ghosts of seven of the Chicago White Sox players who were banned from baseball for throwing the 1919 World Series, including Shoeless Joe Jackson, it brings a golden past into the present. But this heaven on Earth doesn’t stop the voices for Ray so he seeks out to find the meaning of these messages and the true purpose of his baseball field. Similar to other films in the baseball theme, Field of Dreams shows how the seemingly impossible can become incredibly true.
