Major League Baseball has announced that the Yankees and White Sox will play a game at the site of the “Field of Dreams” field in Iowa on Aug. 13, 2020. According to renderings, an 8,000 seat ballpark will be constructed adjacent to the field made famous in the 1989 feature film.
Aaron Judge was the headliner of the video released by the Yankees (see above), where he helps reenact one of the famous scenes from the movie. Other baseball related accounts have also posted about the upcoming game in Iowa.
This is another way that Major League Baseball is looking to expand its popularity. Along with hosting series in other countries, Major League Baseball also hosts the Little League Classic in hopes to entice younger fans.
Earlier this season, the Yankees traveled to London to take on the Boston Red Sox in a three-game series. Given the popularity of the Yankees organization, it shouldn’t be a surprise that they were chosen to play in the first game ever at the Field of Dreams.
As more information comes along, the Bronx Pinstripes team will continue to provide updates.
