Br. Rice freshman stars at ‘Field of Dreams’ game

Br. Rice freshman Jimmy Downs was an unlikely star at last week’s MLB festivities around the Field of Dreams game played Aug. 12 between the White Sox and Yankees in Dyersville, Iowa. Playing with the White Sox’s Amateur City Elite team against the Yankees’ Dream squad on Aug. 11 on the actual field where the movie “Field of Dreams” was filmed, Downs hit a batting-practice home run off Hall of Fame pitcher and Fox Sports broadcaster John Smoltz (center). Also enjoying the moment is former Red Sox star Kevin Millar. (photo courtesy of Joe Downs)
