The game last week between the White Sox and Yankees was one of the coolest events in MLB history, and it became immediately clear that it wouldn’t be a one off event for the league.
When you put together an event that is such a giant success, you don’t just stop after one time. You keep things rolling.
“They built it, and they certainly did come. This is our Field of Dreams.”

That’s exactly what the MLB plans on doing, and August 11, 2022, fans around the country will reportedly get to watch the Cubs and Reds take the field in Iowa.
If it’s even a fraction as entertaining as the 2021 game, then fans are in for an incredible time.

If you didn’t watch the Field of Dreams Game this past Thursday, I suggest you find the highlights online. It was an incredible experience and game.
While I’m not a huge baseball fan, I’ll be the first to admit that it was the coolest thing I’ve seen from the league in a long time.
