Minnesota Mission: Joe's Reflections

Baseball Bonding in the Dirt

Ghost Players, military personnel, and members of the Chisholm All-Stars.


We did have a great group on this barnstorming adventure to Minnesota (click on the link to see the highlights video shot by Darrin and edited by DreamCatcher Productions) and we accomplished our mission to promote the Ghost Players and the state of Iowa while having a great deal of fun.

Our first appearance was at Fan HQ in the Ridgedale Center Mall in...

2 Ghosts and Gorilla?

No, it isn't a new TV show, it is Ghost Player fans, Darrin Butland and Tom Wickham, having a lot of fun with a musical fan.

Steve Evans, USN, out of his naval uniform to represent the US Military All Stars. So nice to see these service members enjoying a bit of fun, one of the benefits of the freedoms they defend. 

Quick Note From Al Vigil

Yes it's that time in our lives when we have to stop and smell the Roses.


Gloria and I have been married 52 wonderful years Sunday the 18th. The day we found "The Field of Dreams, and The Ghost Players" in Dyersville, Iowa 17 years ago. All that has happened and our great memories,  "All the money in the world could not buy that". We are thankful that at our age we still have the positive attitude that we have for each other. We wish you all the best for the rest of your lives.

God Bless You ! ! ! !  Gloria & Al Vigil
