* UnfortunateImplications -- [[http://www.boston.com/sports/columnists/pierce/2010/05/plant_the_corn_again_please.html Some]] have raised their eyebrows at the fact that no black or Latino players showed up in the movie. Granted, major league baseball wasn't integrated until the 50's, but the Negro Leagues had their own great players and if Shoeless Joe got to have his injustice addressed on the Field of Dreams, surely great ball players kept out by segregation could too. Some try to explain this by saying Shoeless Joe only brought back fellow Black Sox players, but that doesn't explain Moonlight Graham or [[spoiler: Ray's dad]].

Later, he brings Mel Ott and other players who were never blacklisted.

* HilariousInHindsight / RealitySubtext: More like Heartwarming In Hindsight, as Shoeless Joe tells Moonlight "you were good". It is Burt Lancaster's filmic epitaph, as it was his final role.

Added DiffLines:

* StrawmanHasAPoint: The closest the film has to an antagonist is Ray's brother-in-law Mark. Until [[spoiler: Doc/Moonlight saved Karin's life]], he couldn't see the ghosts. So, from his perspective, Ray--an inexperienced farmer--mowed his field to build a baseball diamond with no other means of supporting his family. He was concerned with having his sister and niece being bankrupt from Ray's field.

* SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments -- The final game of Catch between Ray and his dad. If you don't get a warm feeling, get back in your coffin. You're clearly dead
