‘Field of Dreams’ Synopsis

Brothers and sisters, brothers and sisters, gather around as I recount the tale of the Field of Dreams.  The supernatural, time-traveling, baseball, family, drama that depicts the return of our left-fielder and savior, Shoeless Joe Jackson.

Our tale begins with a small Iowa farmer, Ray Kinsella.  Now, Brother Ray is a farmer of corn, and not a good one at that.  One day, while tending his crop, Ray hears voices.  Voices that tell him, “If you build it, he will come.”  Now many good Christians in the Bible belt would take such a command to build a church for the return of Jesus Christ.  But Brother Ray knows what the voice wants, and instead builds a baseball field for the ghost of Shoeless Joe to play on.  (Praise Be To Joe.)

Now many of you already know of the tale of Shoeless Joe Jackson, the god of the baseball diamond in pure mortal form.  Joe, who had his own demons in life to fight, the demons of temptation and the hanging curve.  You see, brothers and sisters, Joe gave into temptation, and took money from the devil in exchange for throwing the 1919 World Series, in defiance of God’s will.  And although Joe took the devil’s money, he still batted .375 and collected 12 hits in the series.
