MLB teases Harry Caray 7th-inning stretch for Field of Dreams game

MLB seems determined to make the 2022 Field of Dreams Game one to remember, and they may achieve that if they include Harry Caray during the 7th-inning stretch.

MLB seems determined to make the 2022 Field of Dreams Game as memorable as possible. It’s already been announced that Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto and Chicago Cubs outfielder Ian Happ will be mic’d up. Now, they’re hinting that Harry Caray will be part of the 7th-inning stretch.

It’s rumored that there will be a hologram of Caray. Caray announced for the Cubs from 1982 until 1997, so he’d be yet another nostalgic piece of the Field of Dreams Game.

2022 Field of Dreams Game is seeming to aim for nostalgia

This will be the last Field of Dreams Game before construction changes the iconic movie site forever. The game will be nostalgic for players and fans alike.

Votto shared a sentimental story of how the game is nostalgic for him because of the bond he and his late father shared over the movie. He explained how he was “raised” on the movie and that playing catch with his father was the most important thing the two did together.

He then went on to share, “In Field of Dreams, the movie ends with the main character, Ray, and the ghost of his father having ‘a catch.’ My father passed away 14+ years ago. So it is impossible for me not to feel an emotional connection to the moment when Ray asks his father for a catch. One more moment together.”

Between him being mic’d up, Caray possibly making a holographic appearance and the game being at the original site of the movie, there will be plenty of nostalgia for several fans.
