Field of Dreams Game, The Sequel is Tonight

While the movie Field of Dreams never had a sequel, Major League Baseball’s second Field of Dreams game will be played tonight.  The Chicago Cubs will meet the Cincinnati Reds in Dyersville, Iowa. 

Both teams’ players will be decked out in throwback uniforms. In last year’s game, the White Sox beat the Yankees 9-8 on Tim Anderson’s walk-off homer.  Tonight’s contest will be broadcast on FOX.  The pregame starts at 5 p.m., with the first pitch set for 6:15 Central time.

The news broke yesterday that there will not be a Field of Dreams game next year.  Hall of Famer Frank Thomas, who is part of the group that owns the site, said construction plans for a youth baseball and softball complex will prevent MLB from hosting a third consecutive game in Dyersville.
