MLB jerseys pay homage to 1989 movie ‘Field Of Dreams’

“If you build it, it will come.” You may remember this line from the 1989 classic Field of Dreams. Filmed in Dyersville, Iowa, and starring Kevin Costner, Field of Dreams tells us the story of a farmer named Ray Kinsella who draws inspiration from a voice to build a baseball diamond that would become a place where dreams come true. Easily one of the best baseball movies of all time Field of Dreams shows us how the simple game of baseball can bring people together. Well, it’s now 2021 and Dyersville, Iowa is about to get magical again when the Yankees and White Sox face off in the first-ever MLB game played there. To celebrate this event, players will wear jerseys inspired by the film. Here are the official Major League Baseball details.

MLB at Field of Dreams

Inspired by the movie, the Yankees and White Sox will wear special MLB uniforms at the Field of Dreams Game presented by Geico next Thursday — and that’s just one of the highlights of the game’s unique twists in Dyersville, Iowa. New York and Chicago will each have custom uniforms inspired by teams that played in the early 20th century as they played the first Major League game in Iowa.

New York Yankees

Yankees jerseys are gray with “New York” in navy lettering in a bow across the chest, but in a more retro shape and without the typical white outline. There is also no trim on the sleeves of the jerseys. New York caps will have a loose version of the team’s usual “NY”.

Chicago White Sox

White Sox jerseys are white with navy stripes, featuring a bold vintage “SOX” monogram on the left chest – a large letter S with the O and X contained within the top and bottom loops. The Chicago caps for the game will match the jerseys: plain white with navy stripes and no logo. At batting practice, they will wear a different version of the cap with the “SOX” monogram.

The match is scheduled to take place on Thursday, August 12 and will be broadcast live on FOX.
