The new Field of Dreams. This is the field the Yankees and White Sox played on for MLB’s first-ever regular season game in Iowa

The month of August means the corn is at optimum height and the FOX MLB team is set for a return to Dyersville, Iowa for year two of the magical MLB AT FIELD OF DREAMS GAME, with the Chicago Cubs taking on the Cincinnati Reds in a regular-season matchup on Thursday, August 11 @ 7:00 PM ET on FOX, FOX Deportes and the FOX Sports app. Last year’s inaugural presentation on FOX won the 2021 Sports Emmy Award for Outstanding Live Special.

Joe Davis joins first-ballot Hall-of-Famer and Sports Emmy winner John Smoltz in the booth for the return to the site of the beloved Universal Pictures baseball classic, Field of Dreams. Two-time Emmy Award-winning reporter Ken Rosenthal and four-time Emmy Award-winning broadcaster Tom Verducci round out the broadcast crew, providing exclusive inside information and in-game reports.

Host Kevin Burkhardt is joined by World Series champion and Hall-of-Famer David Ortiz and World Series champion Alex Rodriguez on the network’s highly acclaimed pregame show Thursday, August 11, @ 6:00 PM ET on FOX.

With shades of Moonlight Graham, Tom Rinaldi, a 17-time Sports Emmy Award winner and seven-time Edward R. Morrow Award winner, is doing a feature on Roy Gleason, the only player in MLB history to have a perfect batting average, Purple Heart and World Series Ring.

FOX and MLB will also pay tribute to Field of Dreams star Ray Liotta, who passed away earlier this year, in a piece voiced by fellow castmate Kevin Costner that will air during the FOX MLB pregame show.

The 2022 “A Dream Fulfilled” youth baseball airs on Wednesday, August 10 @ 5:00PM ET on FS1.
