Coming up in the fall of 2020, the Chicago White Sox will go against the New York Yankees for a normal season game on a not so normal field.

The White Sox and Yankees will bring the 1989 movie, Field of Dreams, to life on August 13 2020 as they play a game at the film site.

Though they are playing in the same area, a new stadium is being built as the original field is not up to MLB standards. The current field has a few sets of bleachers and areas for lawn chairs and picnic blankets.

Construction on a new, 8000 seat stadium began this summer.

This will be the first ever MLB game played in Iowa.

The Dyersville and Dubuque areas will likely see greatly increased tourist activity in the week leading up to the game. Reports have also come in of Davenport and Cedar Rapids hotels receiving higher than normal requests leading up to game day.

The game will be televised on FOX for those unable to attend.
