It looks like with the revised schedule for baseball this year, the Yankees won’t be playing in the Field of Dreams Game anymore. Instead, the St. Louis Cardinals will take on the Chicago White Sox. At least all of that work in preparing the site for a game won’t be for nothing. The game will be August 13th in Dyersville, Iowa at the Field of Dreams developed on the same site as the film.
A temporary 8,000-seat stadium is nearing completion at the site, about 200 miles west of Chicago, adjacent to where “Field of Dreams” was filmed on a diamond in a cornfield. This would be the first major league game played in Iowa.
The movie starring, Kevin Costner, featured an exhibition game played at the diamond in the cornfield and showed Costner getting to connect with his Dad through baseball.
