The Brief

In 2013, 13 celebrity baseball players, many Hall of Fame notables, came together to play ball on at the Field of Dreams Movie Site in Dyersville, Iowa. The proceeds from the game benefited the Wounded Warrior Program.

The Results

From the moment Plaid Swan rolled out the first press announcement, this event became international news. Over 200 articles were shared via the Associated Press. The game sold out with over 4,000 fans in attendance.
