Field of Dreams First Responders Game Cancelled
[UPDATE, 1:35 p.m., 10/5: Via the Field Of Dreams Movie Site on Facebook: "The First Responders Game has been officially cancelled due to inclement weather."]
"If you build it, they will come" is the hope of a brand new stadium on the grounds of the Field of Dreams movie site in Dyersville, whose first game will be played next summer. The Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees will compete in the first regular-season MLB game in Iowa on August 13, 2020.
An event there this weekend won't require quite as much preparation but will be held for an important cause.
The "Field of Dreams First Responders Game", to be played Saturday, October 5 from noon to 2:30 p.m. will be a friendly matchup between the New York City and Chicago Police Departments. These heroes protect, serve and save lives on two of the biggest scales in America every day, and their game will benefit the Chicago PD Memorial Fund and New York Police Widows' and Children's Foundations.
Admission is free but feel free to kick in a donation to help these important organizations.
Great food will be available from Manchester restaurant "Rockin' 5k BBQ & Shack".
