Cubs, Reds to play next 'Field of Dreams' game in 2022

The Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds are being tapped to play in the next "Field of Dreams" game in Iowa, ESPN reported Tuesday morning. 

The inaugural game this year, featuring the Chicago White Sox and the New York Yankees, was the most-viewed MLB regular-season game since 2005, attracting an average of 5.9 million viewers.

Despite being postponed for one year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the game still attracted some 8,000 fans to Dyersville, Iowa, for the special event. Next season's game will be played at the same cornfield-adjacent field, next to where the 1989 movie starring Kevin Costner was filmed.
