Team of Dreams Celebrity Benefit Game

Team of Dreams Celebrity Benefit Game

Saturday, September 19 @ 9:30 AM
Field of Dreams (Dyersville, IA)

Mystique Casino is bringing back the amazing Team of Dreams event for 2015, presented by American Trust & Savings Bank. The baseball themed weekend features such returning legendary players as Pete Rose, Reggie Jackson, Johnny Bench, Wade Boggs, and Doc Gooden. Additional legends added to the roster this year include Robin Yount, Andre Dawson, Carlton Fisk, Steve Carlton, Mike Boddicker, Jose Canseco, Rollie Fingers, Brooks Robinson and more. Additionally, Dwier Brown, who played John Kinsella in the classic film, Field of Dreams, will return to the field that made him famous once again on Saturday. Brown has written a book about his experiences making the landmark film.

The weekend features a packed line-up of events and appearances by the legendary players. Fans of all ages will have a unique opportunity to relive their glory years, hear their stories, enjoy a special weekend with loved ones. The Celebrity Dinner on Friday night is already sold out, so we won’t taunt you with those details, but there are still tickets remaining for Saturday’s game in the 1st and 3rd base grandstands as well as General Admission. Tickets range from $25 – $40, but apparently procrastinating pays off because there is now a discount ticket code you can use to get $5 off the price of your ticket to the game. Use the code “5OFFTOD” when you visit the Mystique Casio, call them at 563-582-3547 or go online to teamofdreamsdbq.com to get your tickets. And get this, the little ones under 12 can get their General Admission ticket for just $5. So there’s a great and very affordable way to take the kids or grand kids out to to see the legends of the game in person.

A few VIP parking spots at the field are still available for purchase, but most ticket holders will be directed to nearby satellite parking areas at Dyersville Beckman High School and TOMY Toys and then shuttled to/from the Field of Dreams Movie Site. Shuttle service will start at 6:30 AM Saturday morning.

Yes, the gates open as early as 6:30 a.m. at the Field of Dreams. The pre-game ceremonies will begin at 9:30 a.m. The Team of Dreams will emerge from the cornfield, some of them mic’d up for the game. The Dyersville American Legion Color Guard will take the field for the National Anthem and then the game starts at about 10 a.m., filled with fun and antics from true legends from the sport of baseball.

After the game, about 11:30 a.m. the famous Ghost Players will entertain the audience with their on-field comedy routines, and invite kids onto the field to play catch, run the bases, and participate in some additional fun activities. Starting at noon, the legends will be signing autographs for the fans who made it to the game as part of the Team of Dreams Autograph & Collectible Show. Live music by Greg Jennings and other attractions will also be available during the signing sessions until 3 PM.

“The response to the first event was overwhelming,” said Jesus Aviles, President & CEO at Mystique. “Seeing generations of families share in the joy of that day was just a wonderful experience,” he added. “We could not be more excited and honored to be able to bring these baseball heroes together again.”

“Mystiques mission is to serve the community and contribute to both the city budget as well as non-profit organizations throughout the area,” explains Tony Wernke, Marketing Manager for Mystique Casino. “We also serve to promote regional tourism, and this event will help all three of those goals, specifically benefitting the Tri-State Independent Blind Society, whose mission is to help the visually impaired improve their independence and quality of life. The organization is currently in need of major funding to repair deteriorating building and retaining structures on its property. Mystique Casino anticipates being able to contribute about $25,000 to that effort thanks to the Team of Dreams weekend.”

“We are proud to partner with Mystique Casino to present Team of Dreams 2015,” added Nick Schrup, President & CEO of American Trust. “It’s truly an honor to play a part in enabling the visually impaired to enjoy the quality of life they deserve.”

We’d say this is a once in a lifetime opportunity, but thanks the Mystique Casino and American Trust, this is now a twice in a lifetime opportunity to meet your heroes in person and see them take the field one more time. Don’t miss this chance to share those memories with your family, whether it be your dads or your kids. It’s going to be one for the books.
