Kevin Costner plays a former Sixties idealist who runs a farm in Iowa with his wife and young daughter. After hearing a mysterious, heavenly voice one day, Costner turns one of his cornfields into a baseball diamond. Of course, everyone thinks he's crazy, but in time "Shoeless" Joe Jackson and other ghostly outcasts, who had previously languished in a sort of baseball purgatory, show up to play the game they still love. Soon men from all over the country join them at this baseball shrine, some just to play with the greats, others to mend the broken relationships they had with their fathers -- But all are trying to get back in touch with simpler times through the purity of America's grandest game.
A struggling Iowa farmer (Costner) obeys a mysterious voice in his cornfield that tells him to replace part of his crop with a baseball diamond resulting in the magical meeting of baseball heroes from the past. Mystical forces are at play here as ghosts of other sorts are confronted.
