Tom Verducci on ‘Field of Dreams’

July 27, 2009 at 8:12 am Leave a comment

Hard to believe it’s been 20 years since an Iowa farmer named Ray Kinsella (played by Kevin Costner) built a baseball diamond in his corn field and the Chicago Black Sox showed up.

The movie Field of Dreams marks its 20th anniversary this year. And Sports Illustrated senior writer Tom Verducci ’82 wrote an article recently that take a look back at a movie he calls “timeless.”

“Twenty years later,” Verducci writes, “Field of Dreams remains the quintessential moving-image expression of why we love baseball. Not major league baseball … but baseball as we discovered it and as we prefer to preserve it.”
