Iowa's 'Field Of Dreams' Field To Host Real White Sox-Yankees Game

White Sox Yankees announce 2020 “Field of Dreams” Game in Iowa

The Yankees and White Sox are scheduled to play in Dyersville, Iowa on Thursday, Aug. 13, 2020, then the clubs will head to Chicago to finish their series at Guaranteed Rate Field.

"No, it's Iowa" - the Major League Baseball announced Thursday that the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox will play August 13, 2020, in a temporary 8,000-seat ballpark on the Lansing Family Farm site in Dyersville made famous by Kevin Costner and company in the 1989 classic movie.

"'Field of Dreams" captures the uniqueness of Iowans" can-do attitude, and there's no better place to host our state's very first Major League game than this legendary baseball field in Dyersville", Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds said". Major League Baseball will build its small stadium near the field rather than on top of it. Construction will begin exactly one year before the game is played, and that will include making a pathway through the cornfield for fans to walk through. The teams will be off Friday before finishing the series in Chicago on Saturday and Sunday. It was originally listed for $5.4 million for more than two years.


"We'll get Costner back to throw the first pitch". James Earl Jones, Amy Madigan and Burt Lancaster also starred in the pic, which is now part of the National Film Registry. The Field of Dreams itself is a tourist attraction now, and even though the baseball diamond is still there, they won't be using that exact field for the Yankees-White Sox game. And for years, they've done just that, making pilgrimages to soak in the field's timeless character and to feel the buoyancy that sports can bring. It was a really neat experience. The filmmakers tell a attractive story that resonates to this day, ' White Sox chairman Jerry Reinsdorf said. "To go there, I think it's something we'll all start to look forward to". It's fitting the White Sox are involved considering "Shoeless" Joe Jackson's connection to the movie. But Aaron Judge and his fellow Major League Baseball stars won't be playing on the same diamond that was created for the Kevin Costner movie.

"The Yankees organization is proud to participate in such a unique celebration of baseball", Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner said in a statement.
