First Lights Are Up at ‘Field of Dreams’ in Dyersville (photo)
MLB tweeted out a photo last week of the lights going up at the new ballpark at the Field of Dreams site in Dyersville:
Also, a four-day festival will occur just before the major league baseball game at the Field of Dreams.
The "Beyond the Game" celebration will happen from August 12-15th. The Chicago White Sox will play the New York Yankees on the new ball field in Dyersville on August 13th.
According to the website, beyondthegameiowa.com/, some of the other festivities include outdoor concerts, viewing parties and a major league baseball fan fest.
The ballpark is currently being constructed in the field beyond the northern perimeter of the movie field. A pathway through the cornfield will take fans to the ballpark. The right-field wall will include windows to show the cornfields beyond the ballpark.
Construction began in August for the 8,000 seat ballpark.
