MLB won't return to Field of Dreams site in 2023 due to construction, owner Frank Thomas says

Aug 11, 2022

When Frank Thomas and his partners purchased the “Field of Dreams” movie site a year ago, they outlined a wide range of plans for the rural Iowa tourist attraction.

They hoped to turn it into a youth baseball and softball complex that one day would also have a hotel.

But one thing it won't include next year: a Major League Baseball game.

Thomas said MLB won’t be back in 2023 for another regular season game at the specially constructed stadium near the iconic diamond from the 1989 film, though it remains possible that games will return in future years.

Construction on the youth complex that Thomas' company is building begins later this year and will prevent MLB from making a return for a third straight season.
