The game will be nationally televised on Fox and played in a temporary ballpark near the movie site with a capacity of up to 8,000 粉丝. Major League Baseball said that the game happening will depend on the state of public health next summer due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
It will be the first MLB game in the state of Iowa.
“It’s comforting and it’s exciting,” Roman Weinberg, the director of operations for Go The Distance, which runs the Field of Dreams movie site, said via 今日美国. “Here we go again. It’s the second go-around.
“We were all patient throughout this whole process, understanding that the health and safety of everyone involved is and continues to be the top priority. Postponing the [first] game made sense and was the responsible thing to do, but now that we can put our sights on Aug. 12 of next year, it’s exciting to have that confirmed.”
The original schedule for 2021 had the Yankees playing a three-game series at the White Sox from Aug. 13-15.
