DYERSVILLE, Iowa — Egypt. Australia. A hot dog place in Pennsylvania. A junior college in Chicago.
If Major League Baseball is looking for another place for a game, oh man, do we have some fun ideas.
The second “Field of Dreams” game is Thursday night in the cornfields of eastern Iowa, near the site of the beloved 1989 movie. The Chicago Cubs play the Cincinnati Reds after the 2021 game — a wild 9-8 victory for the Chicago White Sox against the New York Yankees — was a smashing success.
But Major League Baseball wants to wait before making a decision on a third “Field of Dreams” date. It has been in contact with multiple cities about future games — including Evansville, Indiana, about Bosse Field, where parts of the 1992 movie “A League of Their Own” were filmed — and it has an internal working group examining the possibilities.
