MLB Field of Dreams Game 2023: Which teams are playing?

The Chicago Cubs and the Cincinnati Reds face off in the 2022 Field of Dreams game. But who will play in the Field of Dreams game 2023?

The Chicago Cubs and the Cincinnati Reds meet on Thursday MLB Field of Dreams game in Dyersville, Iowa. In 2021, the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox faced each other in a 9-8 slugfest on Thursday, August 12, 2021. The game featured eight homers, including four from each side, but the White Sox prevailed.

But 2023 will be different.

2023 MLB Field of Dreams Game: Who’s Playing?

Tommy Birch from The Des Moines Register was the first to report that MLB will not be returning to Iowa in 2023 to play the Field of Dreams game.

MLB Hall of Famer Frank Thomas is one of the partners who bought the site over a year ago. Due to the area’s massive development, MLB will not return in 2023. Thomas and his partners’ plan includes a youth baseball and softball complex and a hotel. The youth complex is scheduled to break ground later this year, essentially preventing baseball’s return in 2023.

However, MLB could return to Dyersville in 2024 and beyond.

According to Birch, future MLB games at the location would likely be a key to its profitability. As Birch says, “a feasibility study funded by Travel Dubuque predicted that the site would attract 136,000 visitors a year.” It would also create nearly 100 jobs, host 62 events and generate more than $9 million in investment in the first year after the stadium’s construction.

Two-thirds of the stadium’s economic impact would come from MLB games there. In other words, for the stadium and Field of Dreams complex to be viable, MLB urgently needs to get back there.

For MLB’s marketing, it would be a good thing for them to return to Dyersville and venture into other areas of the United States and around the world, so they might return in 2024, but it won’t happen in 2023.
