What is the “Team of Dreams”?

Presented by American Trust and Savings Bank, the Team of Dreams is a day-long celebration of Major League Baseball’s most accomplished and celebrated stars of all-time at baseball’s holy ground — The Field of Dreams Movie Site.

Join the team of Major League Baseball’s most accomplished and celebrated stars of all-time at the Celebrity Breakfast on Sunday, September 3. Hear the rare, first-hand tales of their upbringing and up through their glory years, while enjoying a lush buffet breakfast at the Hotel Julien in Dubuque. After the breakfast, all the action moves to the Field of Dreams Movie Site in Dyersville from noon on beginning with the autograph show, a live Q&A with at least one player, bounce houses for the kids and music while you enjoy a game of catch before the main event at 7:30pm — watching the Game’s greats emerge from the corn and play each other under the lights on the movie set.
