The Chicago White Sox are clearly all in on 2020. They are going to have a game against the New York Yankees at the Field of Dreams!

The Chicago White Sox and Major League Baseball announced that they are going to go to Iowa to play a regular-season game against the New York Yankees at the Field of Dreams. The 1989 movie has been a part of a lot of baseball fans life and now the two most prominent teams in the movie are going to play there.

In the movie, White Sox legend Shoeless Joe Jackson comes back to earth from heaven to play baseball on a field that main character Ray Kinsella builds for him. In the end, it was Ray’s dad John Kinsella who appears in a Yankee jersey and the two get to finally “have a catch”. Now, the real-life teams get to play at the spot in Iowa.

The field is on the Dyersville farm site. The game is going to take place on August 13th, 2020. The aspects of the ballpark will pay homage to Comiskey Park, the home of the White Sox from 1910-1990. It is going to be a game nationally televised on Fox and will start at 6 pm.

This move clearly shows that the White Sox believe that they are going to be a good team in 2020. The Yankees are an elite team and will be for some time so the White Sox know that to be on a stage like this they better be good. They believe they will have a very good on-field product by this time next year.

Field of Dreams is a movie that in the end, shows that baseball is a game that can bond generations and brings very different people together. This move by both clubs and the MLB is brilliant and should do the exact same thing in the movie’s message. They know that “people will come” and watch their favorite teams while wondering, is this Heaven? No, it’s Iowa.
