Kevin Costner and the MLB released an incredible tribute to Ray Liotta during the Field of Dreams game.
The legendary actor recently passed away at the age of 67, and his death sent shockwaves through the entertainment world.
One of Liotta’s most notable roles was Shoeless Joe Jackson in “Field of Dreams” with Kevin Costner. Now, the movie has spurred an annual baseball game in Iowa.
During the Field of Dreams game Thursday night between the Cubs and Reds, Costner voiced a memorial for Liotta featuring moments for the iconic film.
“He gets to live forever in our hearts whenever he steps out in that cornfield. He’s become eternal. Long live Shoeless Joe and long live Ray, who helped show us when dreams come from the heart, they really can come true,” Costner told fans in the tribute.
