Cardinals will be White Sox’ opponent in Field of Dreams game

The Field of Dreams game is still on, and the White Sox are still in it.

The Yankees are out, as expected, and will give way to the St. Louis Cardinals, Major League Baseball confirmed Wednesday.

The game, to be played on a new field constructed in the cornfields of Dyersville, Iowa, was originally set for the Sox and Yankees as a special event Aug. 13 on the 2020 schedule. The setting is the location of the “Field of Dreams” movie, released in 1989.

A temporary stadium with a capacity of 8,000 is being built. Whether fans will attend during the coronavirus pandemic remains to be seen.

Before 2020 took a turn for the worse, I had been looking forward to the possibility of Aaron Judge hitting corn shots all over Iowa.

I don't get it - they are building something for a Field of Dreams game, but there is a question of whether the fans will come.

it is money they have, but peace of mind they lack. and the COVID-19 droplets may be so thick, they'll have to brush them away from their faces.

People may not come. People most definitely may not come.

seems pretty straightforward
