SPOILER ALERT: The real tearjerker part of the story came when you find out the voice was actually Shoeless Joe Jackson, himself and the person he was talking about when he said, “If you build it, HE will come, was someone important to Ray.” When the field clears, there is one last player. It turns out to be Ray’s estranged father, John Kinsella, as a young man. After some introductions and conversation, Ray finally asks his dad if he wants to have a long overdue game of catch.
Ray Kinsella: It's Iowa.
John Kinsella: Iowa? I could have sworn this was heaven. [Starts to walk away]
Ray Kinsella: Is there a heaven?
John Kinsella: Oh yeah. It's the place where dreams come true.
[Ray looks around, seeing his wife playing with their daughter on the porch]
Ray Kinsella: Maybe this is heaven.
