After arriving on the field, the actor also made a speech to the crowd. He gave the nod to his legendary role and highlighted the dream of Major League Baseball. Costner explained:

“Thirty years ago, on the other side of that corn, we filmed a movie that stood the test of time. Tonight, thanks to that enduring impact that little movie had, it’s allowed us to come here again. But now, we’re on a field that Major League Baseball made. 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.”
