“If you build it, they will come”—and then come again 25 years later.

Kevin Costner, the star of 1989’s seminal Field of Dreams walked into the infield at the famous Dyersville, Iowa filming location on Friday and played a round of catch with his two young sons, Cayden, 7, and Hayes, 5.

Surrounded by hundreds of onlookers, Costner traded throws with his kids and other children on the field, which was the filming location for the Academy Award-nominated picture, reports the WCF Courier.

The film, which celebrated baseball’s historic role in American life, also helped launch Costner to fame.

“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 said, according to the Iowa City Press-Citizen. “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.”
