Everything is ready for the second edition of the MLB Field of Dreams game in Dyersfield, Iowa.
Last year, the New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox played an instant classic that featured home runs, lead changes, exciting plays, and a walk-off win by the Sox.
This year, the Chicago Cubs and the Cincinnati Reds will take the field for the second edition of the game, played as a way to reminisce the iconic baseball movie Field of Dreams.

Build it and they will come, he said: like the movie dictated, the league decided to build it in the middle of Dyersville cornfields, adjacent to where the movie that starred Kevin Costner was filmed.
The game will start at 7:15 p.m. ET on Thursday, but there will be several activities at 6 p.m. ET.
Teams Will Emerge From The Cornfields
Of course, both teams will emerge from the cornfields when it’s time for play ball, just like in the film.
“Field of Dreams” is one of the best and most famous sports movies with baseball as the main topic, and fans hold it in high regard.
That’s why they had been clamoring for years for a Field of Dreams game to be played.
Last year’s was the first one.
According to MLB, the teams will wear special uniforms in the evening.
“Cincinnati will have uniforms inspired from 1919, the year it won its controversial World Series over the White Sox. They are white with navy pinstripes and the club’s classic logo embroidered on the left chest. The Reds’ cap is also white with navy pinstripes all around and a vintage red “C” in front. The Cubs will have solid cream-colored jerseys similar to those worn during their 1929 NL pennant-winning season. It features the team’s old-school logo depicting a bear cub holding a bat inside a large red and navy “C,” plus navy blue caps adorned by a white bear cub.”
Everything is ready for the exciting game: hopefully, it will be as thrilling as the 2021 edition.
