Jim Carrier92 - Some consider this the greatest sports movie of all time. Ray Kinsella hears a voice to tell him to build a baseball field in the middle of a cornfield in Iowa in order to bring back the departed all-time great baseball players.

Bryan Lienesch87 - It's an epic. An epic about dreams realized, dreams deferred, and other dreams still unfulfilled. Better yet, it points to the necessity of not everyone catching their dreams.
