White Sox and Yankees to play at 'Field of Dreams' movie site in 2020
(CNN) - It's not heaven, it's Iowa.
Major League Baseball announced Thursday there will be a regular-season game played at the site where the 1989 classic "Field of Dreams" was filmed between the Yankees and the White Sox.
The game will take place on Aug. 13, 2020, at an 8,000 seat temporary stadium at the farm in Dyersville, Iowa. It'll also be televised on FOX, according to CNN.
Fans will be able to walk on a pathway through a cornfield to the ballpark. The right-field wall will have windows to show the fields beyond the ballpark.
This will be the first MLB game in Iowa, according to CNN.
"As a sport that is proud of its history linking generations, Major League Baseball is excited to bring a regular-season game to the site of Field of Dreams," MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said in an MLB press release. "We look forward to celebrating the movie's enduring message of how baseball brings people together at this special cornfield in Iowa."
"Field of Dreams" is about Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella, played by Kevin Costner, who builds a baseball diamond in his cornfield. Shortly after, the ghosts of great baseball players start to appear.
"'Field of Dreams' captures the uniqueness of Iowans' can-do attitude, and there's no better place to host our state's very first Major League game than this legendary baseball field in Dyersville," Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds said. " As the famous movie quote goes, 'Is this heaven?' 'No it's Iowa.' Iowa's truly a land of opportunity, where you can work hard, dream big and anything can happen. I look forward to this historic event in 2020."
