On August 13th, 2020, the New York Yankee and the Chicago White Sox will play a regular season game in Dyersville, Iowa, the site where “Field of Dreams” was filmed. Fox will host a “MLB at ‘Field of Dreams” event on the iconic baseball field.
MLB has announced they will begin construction on a temporary 8,000-seat ballpark for the game. A 3D rendering of the field shows a pathway through a cornfield to take fans to the ballpark which is overlooking the original site for the movie. The game will be considered a home game for the White Sox during a Yankee-White Sox three game set.
Jerry Reinsdorf, chairman of the White Sox said in a statement that “‘Field of Dreams is an iconic, generational baseball story built upon a deep love of the game that transcends even the most impossible of circumstances”. He would go on to say “it is an incredible honor for the White Sox franchise to be the home team against the Yankees in a special setting that will capture everyone’s imagination just like the movie does.”
Yankees principal owner Hal Steinbrenner also said, “The Yankees organization is proud to participate in such a unique celebration of baseball. “Field of Dreams” captures the pure essence of baseball, and it continues to bring generations of fans – and families – together to embrace its timeless roots.
