The Cincinnati Reds will play the Chicago Cubs in the second annual Field of Dreams game, according to multiple reports Monday night.

The game will take place on Aug. 11, 2022. The news was first reported by Gorden Wittenmyer, of NBC Sports Chicago.

The New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox played the first official Major League Baseball game in Iowa last week. The game was played on a field next to the site of the field featured in the movie “Field of Dreams,” which was filmed in Dyersville, Iowa.

Kevin Costner, the star of “Field of Dreams,” led both teams onto the diamond through a field of corn. The teams wore throwback uniforms modeled after uniforms worn in 1919. Tim Anderson hit a walk-off, two-run home run to win the game for the White Sox.
