‘Yellowstone’ TV Star Kevin Costner Says It ‘Felt So Good’ To Return To Field of Dreams

by Matthew Memrick

“Yellowstone” TV Star Kevin Costner said Wednesday that it “felt so good to be back” at the Field of Dreams just playing catch.

Surprisingly, he said he didn’t hear any booming voice say “If you build it, he will come.” Just like in the movie.

The actor tweeted from his band account later in the night after visiting the Dyersville, Iowa attraction.

According to KCCI.com, the “Yellowstone” actor will reportedly throw out the first pitch of Thursday’s Major League Baseball game between the New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox. Expect throwback uniforms, a corn maze in the shape of the MLB logo, and more surprises. Reportedly, the highest-priced tickets are $4,000 and tickets overall average for $1,400. 

‘Yellowstone’ Actor A Part of Film, Field History

After the 1989 movie, Costner “said to the owners, ‘I don’t know if I’d be too sure about tearing this field down.'”

Sportscaster Bob Costas interviewed the “Yellowstone” actor in a swinging chair next to the Field of Dreams from the house.

The owners kept the field alive and worked to make it a tourist attraction.

Fans, too, have linked the “Yellowstone” actor and the movie for years.

One fan Tweeted, “Field of Dreams is one of my absolute favorites. Costner + Baseball = Instant Classic!”

Years later, talk of a pro baseball game started to resonate with fans and the league.

In an interview with the Des Moines Register, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said during a 2016 visit to Dyersville that playing a game in Iowa was possible.

Since then, MLB, the Field of Dreams owners have worked to make Thursday’s game happen.

Want To Stay The Night At The Field?

And when the game is over, maybe the “Yellowstone” actor could stay at the house for the night. While Costner could probably stay for free, guests can also rent out the house for the night. 

A 2018 WQAD story said fans of the film can stay for around $2,000 a night. A guest can stay in the owner’s suite, have access to the entire home and play on the ballfield for the night if they wanted. However, The Des Moines Register said in 2021 that rates now start at $500.

The article also mentioned that guests are greeted by movie site staff. They receive a gift basket full of picnic supplies, wine, the movie DVD and the book “If You Build It” by actor Dwier Brown. Guests also get a $25 gift card to use at one of Dyersville’s restaurants.

According to boxofficemojo.com, the 1989 movie earned about $64 million in the box office. It got three Academy Award nominations, including one for best picture.
