The Major League Baseball (MLB) teams Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds will meet in the 2022 edition of Major League Baseball’s ‘Field of Dreams’ game in Dyersville, Iowa (US), according to multiple reports.

The ‘ESPN’ stated that this year’s inaugural game featured the New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox playing among the cornfields, with Tim Anderson winning it for Chicago on a walk-off two-run homer into the cornstalks beyond the outfield fence.

MLB at Field of Dreams was a regular season Major League Baseball (MLB) game played on August 12th, 2021. The game was played at Field of Dreams in Dyersville, Iowa between the Chicago White Sox and the New York Yankees. This was the first MLB game played in the State of Iowa.

The Major League Baseball (MLB) is an American professional baseball organization and the oldest of the major professional sports leagues in the United States and Canada. A total of 30 teams play in Major League Baseball: 15 teams in the National League (NL) and 15 in the American League (AL).

The Chicago Cubs are an American professional baseball team based in Chicago, Illinois (US). The Cubs compete in Major League Baseball as part of the National League Central division.

The Cincinnati Reds are an American professional baseball team based in Cincinnati, Ohio (US), and were the first ever professional baseball team. The Reds compete in Major League Baseball as a member club of the National League Central division.

The New York Yankees are an American professional baseball team based in the New York City borough of the Bronx. They compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League East division.

The Chicago White Sox are an American professional baseball team based in Chicago. They compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League Central division.

The ‘ESPN’ further stated that the made-from-scratch stadium – built to hold about 8,000 fans – was placed next to the actual diamond where the 1989 movie starring Kevin Costner was shot outside the town of Dyersville, population 4,000. Costner came back for the game and started the evening by slowly walking out of the corn rows – like Shoeless Joe Jackson and his ghost-like teammates did in the film – before turning to watch the players do the same for their made-for-TV pregame introductions.

The event was delayed by one year due to the COVID-19 pandemic which devastated the United States. MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said the MLB would stage the game again in August 2022, with the teams to be announced.
