How did I get free tickets? What was it like in the corn? How close did I get to Kevin Costner? Was the apple pie hot dog any good? This entire day was EPIC and I owe a huge thanks to Chevrolet for everything they provided, including a 2021 Chevy Tahoe SUV for my road trip from Chicago to the Field of Dreams site in Dyersville, Iowa.
If you like the shirt I was wearing, grab one for yourself here:

Anyway, this game between the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees took place on August 12, 2021, and MY GOD there was lots of action. Aaron Judge hit two home runs. Brett Gardner and Giancarlo Stanton also went yard, along with Jose Abreu, Eloy Jimenez, and Seby Zavala — and then Tim Anderson finished the night with a dramatic walk-off shot.
Other than the game itself, I had an incredible time checking out the Field of Dreams movie site. Show them some love on Instagram (@fieldofdreamsmoviesite) and definitely visit someday in person if you have the opportunity. Batting practice was also fun but massively challenging given the fact that there were NO SEATS in fair territory. Double-thanks to Rob Brantly (@robert.brantly) for tossing me two baseballs while the Yankees were hitting. Thanks to celebrity chef Guy Fieri for his newest culinary invention, to actor Dwier Brown for the mid-game selfie, and to Bradley from the Field of Dreams operations staff for helping me out with special access during the game. Thanks to Fenway Chris for filming and thanks to Major League Baseball for making all of this happen. Why not also give some thanks to W.P. Kinsella, author of the timeless and brilliant novel “Shoeless Joe” which was the basis/inspiration for the movie “Field of Dreams.” Finally, thanks to YOU for watching this very long video from my 61st MLB stadium. Much love and please subscribe!
