MLB Found Its Own Version of the Winter Classic With Field of Dreams Game
Looking at the schedule this morning, I scoffed to see only the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox were in primetime. FOX wanted to make sure all eyes were on their Field of Dreams game similar to what they do on a Saturday night. New York and Chicago came to Iowa for a historic night of baseball. To say it went well is an understatement. It is the thing everything will be talking about today. Baseball found something that really works here and this could easily be their version of the NHL Winter Classic. The Tim Anderson home run yesterday was one of the most memorable moments in baseball this season.

MLB will now do this for the next few years. My guess is they will try to expand it as well. Chicago Cubs are no brainers for this game next season. They will not be good, but they have a huge fan base in Iowa. If the Milwaukee Brewers get asked to do this, I’m fucking there. We don’t even need to ask any questions. It’s a go and there’s no other way around it. We’ll see if baseball goes beyond Field of Dreams too. Could they recreate the Sandlot in Los Angeles? What about turning American Family Field into County Stadium?
I’m sure it’s nice for baseball to finally win one.
