On August 12th, major league baseball is coming to Iowa for a special occasion. Two MLB teams will play on the iconic Field of Dreams in Dyersville. The game was scheduled for last summer, but the pandemic made the baseball association put that game on pause.

In 2019, officials from the Field of Dreams movie site said that they would be hosting this huge game. Next to the beloved baseball field made specifically for the movie, a major league field now sits.
