Kevin Costner kicked off and he returns to finish out baseball movie week with this fantasy love letter to the game and the literal magic it can inspire. Costner owns a farm he's not sure what to do with until he starts hearing voices telling him that if he builds it, they will come. What he builds turns out to be a baseball field and who they are turn out to be the ghosts of legendary and long dead ball players who come out to play the game for all eternity. Now if that's not a story that absolutely reveres the sport itself I don't know what does. The movie works though, as an old-fashioned fable and an emotional tribute to American's pastime as the stuff dreams are made of. A perfect cap to our week of baseball films.
