Not really interested in the game. Didn’t we see a movie like this?

I'm stuck at work and can't watch, my son just texted me to tell me he's crying.

Very cool after you get past the first two minutes of Costner looking all pensive and crap. Focus on the players and those throwbacks. freak Costner.

I just watched it.  It would have been better if the guy who played his dad was waiting for Costner, and they played catch for a bit before the players came out.

Yes.

This game is reaffirming my love of baseball. No other sport can evoke this kind of emotion.

AJ Pierzynski playing catch with his son on the field to end the broadcast was perfect.

They call that a "vulture" win.

Does anyone else think maybe they measured the field dimensions incorrectly?

THIS. You and I should grab a beer, if you are someone who drinks beer. Field of Dreams is my favorite movie.

An incredible game, FOX could not have scripted it any better. All the big stars hit at least one HR (Judge hit 2) and the game ended with 9th inning drama - in both halves of the 9th!

I will say: when the players were coming out of the corn, most of them were confused as to whether they were supposed to shake Kevin Costner's hand or not. You could see a lot of them were thinking "do I talk to him? do I shake his hand? do I walk past him?" and in some cases you saw guys walk past him, then get a second thought and double back to see him.

I wonder how many asked him "Is this heaven"?
