The “MLB at Field of Dreams presented by GEICO” event has been tentatively scheduled for Aug. 12, 2021, with the White Sox taking on the Yankees in Dyersville, Iowa, Major League Baseball announced on Monday.
The game, which will be nationally televised on FOX, is contingent on the status of public health next summer, and the feasibility of hosting fans at the event will be evaluated in the coming months. It will mark the first Major League game ever played in the state of Iowa.
MLB was initially set to host the “Field of Dreams” game featuring the same two clubs this past season, having built a temporary ballpark with a potential capacity of 8,000 fans adjacent to the site of the 1989 film, which starred Kevin Costner, Ray Liotta, James Earl Jones and Amy Madigan.
See you next season, Iowa.

After the 2020 schedule was amended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Yankees were replaced by the Cardinals. However, the game was ultimately postponed.
