2 MLB teams are still to be officially determined yet and will face off at the Dyersville, Iowa, farm in Summer 2021, three decades after Field of Dreams debuted in 1989.SIGN UP!
The Chicago White Sox and St. Louis Cardinals were set to have their Field of Dreams moment at the Iowa stadium where the 1989 baseball title was filmed, until the COVID-19 pandemic spoiled their plans.
On Monday, Major League Baseball announced that it would cancel the August 13 match at a temporary stadium in Dyersville, Iowa between the Sox and Cardinals due to the infectious disease.

The cancelled game is yet another strike for the MLB as it had already revised it 120-game play off schedule by cutting the amount of games in half. The White Sox will have a shot of touching base with the Hollywood film when they’re slated to return to the Iowa stadium in 2021.

In collaboration with Universal Studios, which released Field of Dreams in 1989, a temporary ballpark to seat 8,000 attendees will be built on the original film site in Dyersville, Iowa. The game will take place in the summer of 2021. Spectators will have to walk along a path through the corn fields to get to the new field. The game will count as a regular-season match, and will be the first regular-season MLB game ever to be held in the state of Iowa.

Drone video shows crews have completed erosion control work on the land. Now, crews are working on the field's drainage system. Despite the fall's heavy rain, the Field of Dreams mangers said construction is still on schedule. "They'll actually get to the point where the field is ready for sod come winter time," said Roman Weinberg, operations manager at Field of Dreams. "So they'll lay sod down in the spring, and it'll be ready to go and playable early in the season." Managers said the No. 1 question they're asked is when people can buy tickets for the game between two MLB teams to be determined sometimes during the Summer of 2021. MLB will make the announcement in a few months...
