When I was scrolling through the headlines today I wasn't thinking about this, but I long ago thought to myself that I was sure it would be canceled. The Field of Dreams game is still on though - on August 13 between the Cardinals and White Sox. At least as of now it is.

More information is here.

I thought it was going to be too good for this to happen, but the Field of Dreams game has been canceled. Sad It was supposed to be played next week. Article from mlb.com

Well, there's so much that has been written about this, but the White Sox did beat the Yankees on Thursday, the concept was well-received, and the initial FOD game was deemed to be a success.

I watched it (most of it) and loved it! I thought it was a novel idea for MLB to tie in a classic movie with a real game. Well done!

After reading this piece written by a fan who went to the game, I am pledging to add the Field of Dreams game to my bucket list now! - article linked here

I loved that--a baseball fan and historian. Thanks.

Glad to be watching it on an open (travel) day for our Dodgers.

Cubs won, 4-2.

MLB has announced that it will not continue this classic game in 2023.
