9th inning HR for Sox in ‘Field of Dreams’


WASHINGTON (AFP) — Tim Anderson hit a two-run walk-off homer to lift the Chicago White Sox to a 9-8 victory over the New York Yankees and give Major League Baseball's "Field of Dreams" game in Iowa a real Hollywood ending.

The thrilling finish was fitting for the game played recently in a temporary ballpark set amid cornfields in Dyersville, Iowa, just a stone's throw from where the Academy Award-nominated 1989 movie "Field of Dreams" was filmed.

The movie's star, Kevin Costner, was among those in attendance at the 8,000-seat venue, where players from both teams marvelled at the bucolic setting and the lovingly created ballpark.
