Trivia: During the filming of the cornfield scenes where Ray first hears the voice, the filmmakers had problems with the corn growing. When they initially wanted to film the scenes the corn was too short, so they waited a couple of weeks. When they were ready to shoot, the corn was too tall. Kevin Costner had to walk on wooden planks, so he could be seen in the cornfield (Director Phil Alden Robinson discussed this in the 10th anniversary edition of the film).

Trivia: At the end of the movie, where you see the cars driving to the Kinsella's house to see the ballfield, it's actually a bunch of cars lined up for miles and to give the illusion the cars are moving, the car owners are flashing their headlights.
