MLB to play on “Field of Dreams” next year

They’re building it.

“Field of Dreams” will become a big-league reality on Aug.
13, 2020, when the beloved 1989 baseball movie will spring to life in the Iowa
cornfields. As announced Thursday, the White Sox and Yankees will stage the
first-ever Major League game in the Hawkeye State, in a temporary 8,000-seat
ballpark constructed in the corn on the Dyersville farm site where the classic
film was shot.

MLB at Field of Dreams presented by GEICO will be nationally
broadcast on FOX at 7 p.m. ET. and, following the precedent of the now-annual
Little League Classic in Williamsport, Pa., and this year’s MLB in Omaha at the
NCAA’s College World Series site, is the latest example of the game bringing
itself to iconic American baseball venues outside of typical big league
jurisdiction.
