White Sox, Yankees to play at ‘Field of Dreams’ in 2020

The Chicago White Sox will play the New York Yankees next summer at the site in eastern Iowa where the movie "Field of Dreams" was filmed, Major League Baseball announced Thursday. But for one night, big leaguers will play baseball at the Iowa farm that was made famous in the beloved film Field of Dreams.

The "Field of Dreams" game will technically not be played on the original field from the 1989 film, as Major League Baseball intends to build a new 8,000-seat stadium due to the lack of seating and the dimensions at the original.

The right field wall will be broken up by windows to show the cornstalks beyond the wall, and the ballpark's design will honor old Comiskey Park, home of the White Sox from 1910-1990.

Next Tuesday will mark the start of construction of the ballpark, one year before the special game. 'We all are looking onwards to celebrate the enduring message of the film of how baseball brings the public together at this particular cornfield in Iowa'.

This latest Major League Baseball announcement is a dream come true for sports fans-or more specifically, it's a field of dreams come true. The filmmakers tell a handsome story that resonates to this day. "It seems very fitting that 30 years after the film's debut, MLB will build a ballfield in an Iowa cornfield where we will come to play a game so that baseball fans can create their own memories to be cherished for decades".

But it has faced stiff resistance from fighters aligned with the UN-recognised government, which is aided by Turkey and Qatar. Thousands of African migrants captured by Libyan forces supported by the European Union are trapped in detention centers.

The game will be counted as the part of the usual season, beginning a series of 3 games between the White Sox and Yankees. "I look forward to this historic event in 2020".

"The Yankees organization is proud to participate in such a unique celebration of baseball", Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said in a statement. Judge then nods and continues to run onto the field.

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.

The White Sox also are eager to take part in the game.
