If you build it… they will come — to a nearly 8,000-seat stadium in the middle of a cornfield in rural Dyersville, Iowa, that is. The New York Yankees play the Chicago White Sox on Thursday evening in the much-anticipated MLB matchup being held next to the actual site where the beloved baseball classic “Field of Dreams” was filmed.
The game was originally scheduled for August 2020, more than three decades after the 1989 film became a hit, but was postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Fans are paying record ticket prices to watch the one-off game in-person — most threw more than $1,400 a ticket on resale sites, CNN Business reported. MLB sold tickets exclusively to Iowa residents at a face value of either $375 or $425.
