Major League baseball has announced it will play the first ever regular season game in Iowa at the iconic Field of Dreams site near Dyersville.
The MLB announced the White Sox and Yankees will play in a temporary eight-thousand seat ballpark constructed near the site where the 1989 movie was filmed. The game is set for August 13th of 2020 at 6:00 pm.
A statement from Commissioner Rob Manfred says: “We look forward to celebrating the movie’s enduring message of how baseball brings people together at this special cornfield in Iowa.”
The original field became tourist attraction where fans of the movie starring Kevin Costner can play catch and live out their own baseball dreams.
