‘Field of Dreams Game’ Reportedly Still On, Will Feature White Sox and Cardinals

Chicago Cubs

Although it remains very hard for me to see this game getting pulled off in a way that makes sense for the teams, the community, and the financing, MLB has yet to cancel the August 13 ‘Field of Dreams Game’ in Iowa. It might be the only special event before the postseason that even has a chance to be played.

That said, what was supposed to be a game between the White Sox and Yankees could no longer be, since those two teams will not play each other under the new 2020 schedule. There were rumors that the Cubs and Cardinals were being considered as replacements, but reportedly, the White Sox will get to keep their spot:

We don’t yet have the schedule out for the 60-game season, but we know a version has been approved by the players. As I understand it, MLB is holding back the official schedule release as long as possible just in case circumstances on the ground change rapidly and they have to adjust before the season begins. That said, it seems very plausible that the ‘Field of Dreams Game’, as it relates to the planned schedule, is now in place.
