I’m The Same Age As Ray Kinsella In Field Of Dreams, And Now The Kevin Costner Movie Hits A Whole Lot Harder


Field of Dreams came out a little more than a year after I was born, and over the past few decades, I’ve watched the classic Kevin Costner movie more times than I can even begin to count. I love this movie, have read the book on which it was based, consider it one of the best baseball films of all time, and can’t watch it without crying (you know the scene). But, I recently turned 36 years old, the same age as Ray Kinsella, and after watching the movie for the umpteenth time, it hits a whole lot harder.

Watching Field of Dreams as a kid is a different experience from watching it as a teenager, but watching it as a 36-year-old with a wife, three kids, and a mortgage is something else entirely. Come with me, as I walk through the proverbial cornfield of my life and try to make sense of this enchanting, emotional, and admittedly slightly terrifying experience.
