FENWAY PARK’S APPEARANCES IN MOVIES
Field of Dreams
This classic baseball film included this pivotal scene filmed at Fenway Park.
Kevin Costner’s character has convinced James Earl Jones’s character to attend the game with him. While there, they hear a voice to “go the distance.”
Somewhere among all the extras in the background of these scenes were Ben Affleck and Matt Damon in their first film appearances. The pair were still in high school when the movie was filmed. Affleck would later return to Fenway to film scenes from his movie “The Town.”
The iconic Citgo sign made an appearance in the film, as well.

The sign was upgraded to an LED display a few years ago because its original bulbs were no longer manufactured and could not be replaced.
