“If you build it, they will come.” The famous line from the 1989 movie “Field of Dreams” became a reality today as Major League Baseball announced the Chicago White Sox will play the New York Yankees next season in Dyersville, Iowa, on the very same field where the iconic movie was filmed. Fox will broadcast the game nationally on August 13, 2020.

According to mlb.com, construction begins next week on a temporary 8,000-seat ballpark to accommodate fans who will walk through a cornfield path to enter the complex. The site says a regular outfield wall will be constructed in front of the current cornfield wall, but the right field wall will have windows in it in order to see the corn.

The limited ticket information for what will serve as a White Sox home game will be announced at a later date.
