Dwier Brown was born on January 30, 1959, in Ohio, and attended Ashland University.
Dwier has appeared in 58 movies and TV shows, from the 1982 movie "The Member of the Wedding, " 1983's "Thorn Birds," TV shows such as "ER," "Murder She Wrote," and "Criminal Minds."
It's the 1989 movie "Field of Dreams" that we all know and remember Dwier from.
Dwier plays John Kinsella, father of Ray Kinsella, played by Kevin Costner, and the ending of the movie still brings me to cry every time I see the movie.
"...hey, Dad...wanna have a catch?"
Field Of Dreams is in my top 5 baseball movies, and I watch it every time I come across it on TV.
Dwier has written a book, "If You build It," available at
The book is definitely on my 2015 baseball book reafing list.
