What will the uniforms look like?

Is the Field of Dreams corn real?

Having an MLB game in the middle of a cornfield is no easy feat.

Brothers Andy and Adam Rahe have been farming the land for years.

"We take a lot of pride in all our farming," Andy said. "But we take a little extra pride here too."

Who owned the Field of Dreams farm?

While the site was sold and is now owned by a company called Go the Distance, the farm was originally owned by the Lansing family.

“It’s more Lansing family farm to us than ‘Field of Dreams,’” Becky Lansing said.

How do the Cubs and Reds get to the Field of Dreams stadium?

Playing in rural Iowa makes travel a bit unusual compared to most MLB ballparks.

The teams will fly into Dubuque on the day of the game before getting a police escort to the stadium.

Will there be a Field of Dreams game in 2023?

There will not be a Field of Dreams game in 2023. Construction plans at the movie site were cited as the reason.

"It's a lot going on," said Frank Thomas, a former MLB player who is part of the new ownership group that owns and operates the "Field of Dreams" movie site. "They don't want to come back if the stadium's not prepared."

Will Kevin Costner be at the 2022 Field of Dreams game?

Actor Kevin Costner, who starred in the 1989 film, made a dramatic entrance just before first pitch at last year's Field of Dreams game. He grabbed a microphone and addressed the crowd.

"Thirty years ago, on the other side of that corn, we filmed a movie that stood the test of time," Costner added. "Tonight, thanks to that enduring impact that little movie had, it's allowed us to come here again. But now, we're on a field that Major League Baseball made."

Costner, however, reportedly won't be in attendance at this year's event.
