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,, 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.
