The 2020 Major League Baseball season was supposed to include a very special game – a baseball game next to the field that was created for the film “Field of Dreams” starring Kevin Costner.
The phrase, “if you build it, they will come” was to become, if you play it they will watch when the New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox were to play a game on a newly constructed field adjacent to the one created for the film.
With the onset of the corona virus and the subsequent shutdown of all sports, the teams were changed to the Chicago White Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals.
Now with outbreaks of the virus among some of the teams, cancelled and postponed games; MLB has announced that the “Field of Dreams” game will be postponed until the 2021 MLB season.
The cornfield and ballpark are in Iowa; MLB will keep the White Sox as the host team with their new opponent yet to be determined.
Over the past several days, it was announced that half of the Miami Marlins had tested positive for the Covid-19 virus and most recently there have been some players on the St. Louis Cardinals team who tested positive; calling into question as to whether or not the 60 game season is in jeopardy or even viable.
