Field of Dreams location to host White Sox-Yankees game

According to Deadline, the legendary field from the classic film Field of Dreams will play host to a regular season contest between the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox on August 13, 2020 next season. In preparation for the historic event, the MLB will construct a temporary 8,000-seat stadium on the site, which has been a much-loved tourist attraction since the Academy-Award nominated films’ debut in 1989. The announcement was made via the MLB’s twitter page.

Field of Dreams follows Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner), builds a magical baseball field on his farm in order to bring back “Shoeless” Joe Jackson (Ray Liotta) and the legendary Sox team that was accused of throwing the 1919 World Series. Ray follows the promptings of a mysterious voice that proclaims, “If you build it, he will come,” and, along with his wife Annie (Amy Madigan), finds himself on a journey to bring back the magic of baseball.

“As a sport that is proud of its history linking generations, Major League Baseball is excited to bring a regular season game to the site of Field of Dreams,” MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement. “We look forward to celebrating the movie’s enduring message of how baseball brings people together at this special cornfield in Iowa.”

Per the report, the design (which you can see below) pays omage to Chicago’s old Comiskey Park, where the 1919 Sox played.
