2021 Field of Dreams

September 13, 2021

They'll watch the game and it'll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick they'll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come Ray. The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good and it could be again.

We've come to see the first place White Sox play the mighty Yankees in a field that was once corn. It's perfect. We've kept our promise. Major League Baseball has kept its promise. The dream is still alive. There's probably just one question to answer: Is this heaven? Yes, it is.

As a kid you dream of the chance to play Major League Baseball and you watch certain movies or heroes in comic books and fairytales, and getting a chance to actually be at the Field of Dreams and play a game here and have family and friends here and getting a chance to represent the Yankees here, never in my life did I think I’d ever experience this.

The fans came to see a show, and we gave them a show. Being able to walk it off was definitely one of the best moments of my career, for sure.

That was as special and breathtaking a setting for a baseball game as I’ve ever been part of.

That's the iconic thing you want to do at an event like this. It's the iconic thing I was looking forward to more than anything, and so being able to run through there, get some photos in there has been fantastic.
