The Register reported that some 12,000 fans came out to the historic field where the movie was shot in 1988.

It was Costner's first visit back to the field in almost a decade. Costner Brought his sons -- Hayes, 5, and Cayden, 7 -- and even had a game of catch with them on Friday, just like the famous scene in the movie between Costner and his on-screen father.

"The movie does deal with that biblical thing of men and their sons maybe not getting don't want to go through life and wish you had played catch," the actor said. "That's the metaphor: playing catch."
