Yankees Set to Play Game Where ‘Field of Dreams’ Was Filmed
Even if you're not a huge Yankees fan, you'll appreciate this. Sports Illustrated is reporting that both the New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox will play a regular season game on August 13. 2020 at Dyersville, Iowa's famed "Field of Dreams" park.
The ball field was the back drop of the 1988 movie Field of dreams, starring Kevin Costner and James Earl Jones.
Sports Illustrated said that Major League Baseball will begin building an 8,000 seat ballpark at the site this year. However, the famous cornfield will remain untouched in the background.
MLB has held regular season games in such other locations as Japan, London, Fort Bragg, N.C., Williamsport, PA., and Omaha, NE before, but this will be the first at the "Field of Dreams" in Iowa.
