Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees will face off at the Dyersville, Iowa, farm, now rescheduled for August 12th 2021, three decades after Field of Dreams debuted in 1989.SIGN UP!
NEW YORK -- The Chicago White Sox will host the New York Yankees in the rescheduled Field of Dreams game in Dyersville, Iowa, on Aug. 12.
MLB said Monday that the plan is tentative, contingent on the status of public health next summer.
The teams had been scheduled to play at the 8,000-capacity temporary ballpark next to the Field of Dreams movie site last Aug. 13.
When the MLB schedule was revamped because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Yankees were replaced as the opponent by the St. Louis NYC Yankees, but the game was called off on Aug. 4 because of the pandemic.
The rescheduled game will be MLB's first in Iowa. The original schedule for 2021 had the Yankees playing a three-game series at the Chicago White Sox on Aug. 13-15.
The baseball field that served as the setting for Field of Dreams, the film starring Kevin Costner, will host two professional MLB teams in 2021: the two lucky MLB teams are, the New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox. In collaboration with Universal Studios, which released Field of Dreams in 1989, a temporary ballpark to seat 8,000 attendees will be built on the original film site in Dyersville, Iowa. The game will take place on Thursday, August 12th 2021. Spectators will have to walk along a path through the corn fields to get to the new field. The game will count as a regular-season match, and will be the first regular-season MLB game ever to be held in the state of Iowa.

Drone video shows crews have completed erosion control work on the land. Now, crews are working on the field's drainage system. Despite the fall's heavy rain, the Field of Dreams mangers said construction is still on schedule. "They'll actually get to the point where the field is ready for sod come winter time," said Roman Weinberg, operations manager at Field of Dreams. "So they'll lay sod down in the spring, and it'll be ready to go and playable early in the season." Managers said the No. 1 question they're asked is when people can buy tickets for the game between two MLB teams to be determined sometimes during the Summer of 2021. MLB will make the announcement in a few months...
