Kevin Costner

It's been 25 years since Kevin Costner stepped on that famous baseball field in Dyersville, Iowa, in Field of Dreams.

The 59-year-old actor returned to the site with his three children over the weekend right in time for Father's Day and reflected on the film's success to local reporters.

"Iowa has left a mark on me. Have I left a mark on Iowa? I don't know. But Iowa certainly has been an important part of my filmography," he explained while his kids played on the field.

Two of his sons, Hayes and Cayden, played catch and daughter Grace ran around the bases with her mom, Christine Baumgartner, while Costner spoke to local media.

During the visit, he admitted that his three youngest kids had never seen the hit film but that a 25th anniversary screening of the movie on that very field was the best place to introduce them to it.

"I'm going to sit in a little cornfield in Iowa, these lights are going to go out, and we're going to watch a movie," Costner shared.

"And I don't think there's anything more American, I don't think there's any bigger miracle for me that occurred than this movie that was made 25 years ago here in this field."

Fans far and wide came in droves to watch the movie on the outfield grass and play catch before the flick, including some faces famous like Timothy Busfield and Colin Egglesfield.
