Many of us have grown up with the iconic film that was set right here in Iowa. It's been such an integral part of our lives that we sometimes feel like we know the characters. Well, one of those characters made a stop right here in Northeastern Iowa.

With the Field of Dreams MLB game just a few short days away, many of the film's stars are expected to be flocking to Dyersville. Kevin Costner is just one of the names flying around for this momentous baseball game. However, the man behind inarguably the most emotional scene in the entire film has already been spotted right here in our own backyard.

Dwier Brown, who played Ray Kinsella's father, John, is making a few stops in Iowa before the big MLB game between the White Sox and New York Yankees.

Yes, the actor who is responsible for one of the only movies in cinematic that can make a grown man cry will be going to the game. Brown, who is also a well-known speaker has been making the rounds promoting the game and this new cereal.

It's a limited edition Field of Dreams box of corn flakes to commemorate the upcoming game. A portion of each cereal box sold will go to a nonprofit organization. He partnered with HyVee and PLB to get this cereal into stores.

The actor has been back on the road this month after a quiet year due to COVID-19. Brown just started going out to public engagements. He just stopped in Wilkes Barre/Scranton to play with the area's local minor league baseball team, the Iron Pigs.

Earlier this week, it seemed like Brown finally got to heaven...I mean Iowa. On the actor's website, he is scheduled to be a part of all of the festivities in Dyersville this week. Late Monday evening, Brown posted that he was going to be at the HyVee in Dubuque signing cereal boxes.

From the looks of things on social media, the line to meet this actor was pretty line. Fans and locals gathered around to get a glimpse of the movie dad.

This is hopefully the first of many sightings of the actor in the area over the next few days.
