The New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox won’t play the first-ever Major League Baseball game at the famous “Field of Dreams” in Dyersville, Iowa, until next August. But local businesses already are gearing up for what they hope will be an economic home run.
The chamber of commerce in Dyersville (2017 population: 4,220) has been inundated with phone calls about tickets to the game, which will take place Aug. 13, 2020, in an 8,000-seat park that will be constructed on the set of the 1989 film, Field of Dreams.
