The baseball field that served as the setting for Field of Dreams, the film starring Kevin Costner, will host two professional MLB teams in 2020: 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 Aug. 13, 2020. 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 the White Sox will be the “home” team, surrendering a home date at Guaranteed Rate Field for this game. This will be the first regular-season MLB game ever to be held in the state of Iowa.
Oct 9, 2019 DYERSVILLE, Iowa — Construction began two months ago to recreate the Field of Dreams in Dyersville for a Major League Baseball game. 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 the New York Yankees and Chicago White Socks on Aug. 13, 2020. MLB will make the announcement in a few months.
Just for one great night, big leaguers will reunite for one magic night to play baseball as a part of their regular season, at the Iowa farm that was made famous in the now, classic & beloved film Field of Dreams.
The game is slated for the night of Aug. 13, 2020 — three decades after Field of Dreams debuted in 1989. Aaron Judge and his fellow MLB stars won't be playing on the same diamond that was created for the Kevin Costner movie. Instead, they'll play at a temporary 8,000-seat ballpark.
