3 Hours South of Rochester, MLB Will Play At Iowa’s Field of Dreams
Iowa's Field of Dreams, and Iowa itself, will finally host a Major League Baseball (MLB) game this August. Just a few hours south of Rochester, Minnesota, outside Dyersville, Iowa, the Field of Dreams ball field is famous for the movie by the same name.
Hollywood built the field on two family farms for 1989's Field of Dreams, starring Kevin Costner, and it still stands today. The Field of Dreams has yet to host a MLB game. For that matter, a major league baseball game has never been played anywhere in Iowa.
It was supposed to happen last year, but the Coronavirus put a halt to that plan. So, plans are back on, but they are tentative plans...
"Major League Baseball today announced its tentative 2021 plans for the MLB at Field of Dreams Presented...game, featuring the Chicago White Sox and the New York Yankees in Dyersville, Iowa. MLB has slated the nationally broadcast game for Thursday, August 12th on FOX. Plans will remain contingent upon the status of public health next summer, and the feasibility of ticket availability will be evaluated in the months ahead." (MLB)
You'll be able to watch it on Fox.

If you want to be closer to the action, you can always rent the farmhouse on the Field of Dreams property. (Rates: Per Day if you want to have access to the house AND the field: $900.00). Sadly, and not surprisingly, it's rented out all of June, July, and August.
