The date has been set for the PepsiMax Field of Dreams baseball game that will be held at Frontier Field. Rochester-native Johnny Perotti won the contest last fall.

Perotti will play on the Field of Dreams American League team with five of his closest friends and family alongside Major League Baseball Hall-of-Famers.

"I was pretty good when I played in high school; obviously that was a long way away. I'm sure some people who played with me, they'll be here to watch, so I gotta try to be able to perform a little bit decent. I don't want to be too embarrassed out there," he said.

Expected to take part in the game are legends Rickey Henderson, Reggie Jackson, Johnny Bench and Ozzie Smith, among others.

"My first reaction was, wow. To have all those guys, ten great former major league baseball players, playing ball too. It's not just here to wave to the crowd, throw out a first pitch and sign a few autographs. Our fans are going to get to see these guys play," said Dan Mason, Red Wings general manager.

The game is set for Saturday, May 18. Game time is set for 6 p.m. Tickets go on sale on Saturday.
