With a backdrop of corn as high as an elephant’s eye, the NY Yankees will meet Chicago August 13th, 2020 on the diamond in Dyersville, Iowa where the movie Field of Dreams was filmed.
MLB is constructing a temporary 8,000 seater on site.
To give fans a Hollywood feel, MLB will have the cornfield from the movie at 280 feet from home plate, plus the red barn and two-story white farmhouse around the field, too. Field of Dreams won the Oscar for best film in 1989 and sparked a love of baseball for new and older sports fans.
