After he hears this, he envisions a baseball field. He decides to build the field on his farm to see what happens. After waiting for a year, dead baseball players from the 1919 Chicago White Sox team appear and start playing on the field. Ray receives other messages that send him on a trip to find an author and other players from the past. Throughout all this, his brother-in-law keeps telling Ray he will go bankrupt. It all culminates in Ray's dead father coming to the field to play catch with his son.
