Major League Baseball, along with Universal Pictures, officially announced on Friday that baseball will return to the Field of Dreams in 2022.

On Aug. 11, 2022, the Cincinnati Reds and Chicago Cubs will play a regular-season game in Dyersville, Iowa, on the same field used in the 1989 movie Field of Dreams. 

“The Cincinnati Reds are excited to be part of MLB at Field of Dreams in 2022,” said Phil Castellini, Reds President & Chief Operating Officer.

“Given our long-standing affiliation with the Iowa Cubs and the fact the state is in our home television territory, the Cubs enjoy an incredible following in Iowa,” said Cubs President of Business Operations Crane Kenney. “We look forward to playing in front of our Iowa fans and expanding on the amazing success of the first Field of Dreams game.”

The Reds and Cubs contest will be the second installment of the “MLB at Field of Dreams” event.

The inaugural edition took place last week, on Aug. 12, when the Chicago White Sox defeated the New York Yankees 9-8, drawing a television audience of six million viewers in the United States.
