As you all must be knowing that the MLB’s season finally started from July last week after lots of alteration in schedules. It was supposed to start in March 2020 but due to Covid-19 pandemic, every other sport has been postponed or cancelled.
After almost 4 months the season has been started with a lot of hindrances. Initially, it was planned that there will be 126 matches in the season but now it is cut down to 60 matches only.
Major League Baseball’s “Field of Dreams” game was supposed to be played in Dyersville Iowa on 13th August, but it has also been postponed to 2021 due to Novel Coronavirus according to the sources.
The location is very ironic because at this site 1989 baseball movie was filmed. It is a temporary stadium in Dyersville Iowa and would have been the first baseball game in Iowa. Following the recent occurrence of the Covid-19 positive cases in teams, it’s impossible for the game managers to take a step in Iowa now. With the current circumstances, it is best for the team not to take any extra effort to travel or play.
Initially, it was decided that The Chicago White Sox and New York Yankee scheduled to play their game in Iowa and due to pandemic situation St. Louis Cardinals has replaced New York Yankees. MLB has decided to keep Chicago White Sox as one of the team for next season, but another team is yet to determine to play against in Iowa.
For now, MLB has decided to play in the most games in Los Angeles. As they have some teams like Marlins and St. Louis who have positive teammates. It will be better to keep them in one location.
