Dyersville, Iowa: The highly publicized MLB "Field of Dreams" game between the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox has been some six years in the making. Located at the "Field of Dreams" in Dyersville, Iowa, the game was delayed from August of 2020 to August 12th, 2021.
The day before on August 11th, two youth organizations affiliated with MLB got to enjoy their own dream experience. Kids from the 14U White Sox Amateur City Elite (ACE) program played DREAM from New York City in an experience neither team will soon forget. Both teams were sporting Outdoor Cap's MLB Replica hats on the field during play.
After getting to practice on the field earlier in the day, the teams enjoyed 4 innings of play after a two hour weather delay with ACE topping DREAM 8-7.
DREAM watched the movie, Field of Dreams, on Tuesday night following a team dinner.
The kids enjoyed every minute of their experience visiting and playing on the "Field of Dreams" movie site.
ACE watched the 1989 movie, Field of Dreams, as a team at local Beggars Pizza in Chicago.
"This trip has been a lot of fun," DREAM third baseman Gabriel Rivera said. "We have a bunch of kids that are just great to be around, and we are playing on the same field after we watched the movie. It's so fun. Just a great experience."
