Posted: Updated:

It's a dream for baseball fans -- being able to see their favorite players up-close and in action.

This weekend kicked off the Team of Dreams celebrity softball game at the Field of Dreams in Dyersville.  

All-star players like  Reggie Jackson and Jose Canseco showed up for the big game.

"They were gracious enough to get an old hasbin player with all these Hall of Famers, so it was kind of fun.  Then I get to bring my family, bring my son and he gets to play in the game so it's just gonna be a blast," said  all-star payer Mike Boddicker.

Fans of all ages came out to enjoy the game.

"It's great seeing some of these guys that were legends when I was growing up come out to play, put on this event here at the Field of Dreams," said josh Vondran.

A big crowd came out for the game. Organizers say they sold about 3,500  tickets.

Proceeds from the Team of Dreams events go to the Tri-State Independent Blind Society.  The local charity received $25,000.

The Team of Dreams celebrity benefit was sponsored by Mystique Casino.
