DYERSVILLE, Iowa (AP) — The Field of Dreams movie site in Dyersville has taken on the ghostly feel of the Kevin Costner movie shot at the field 24 years ago for an unusual night game.

A team of ghost players emerged from the cornfield to play in the first night game at the field on Sunday.

About 100 people attended the game at the field featured in the 1989 movie in which an Iowa farmer builds a baseball field and ghostly players from the 1919 World Series return to play.

The modern day ghost players are a team of former professional and semi-professional baseball players. Some were in the movie.

They will take the Field of Dreams field again Sept. 15 and Sept. 29 in day games.
