The next day they said the Field Of Dreams game drew higher ratings than any regular season game over the past 10 years, so a lot of people were drawn into the novelty/legacy of the movie, and not surprisingly, MLB says there will definitely be another game next year....AWESOME !!! It was nice to have the Yankees there in the first game, the most identifiable team in MLB gives it a boost. I bet there were a lot of people from Chicago there, as Dyersville is only about 30 miles from the Illinois border, and closer to Chicago than Des Moines.

Noticed a couple of White Sox players could not resist the temptation of sampling some of the corn, not knowing it was field/feed corn, they spit it out. I guess they didn't plant sweet corn because everyone would pick it going thru the corn maze, and eat it at the game, which would cut into concession stand profits. Really, they should give out sweet corn so we can see the audience chewing on corn while they watch the game, and players in the dugout eating corn too, it would add atmosphere, give them free butter and get them all greasy faced and ready for some baseball. The fans could throw cobs to show displeasure for a player or umpire that made a bad call.

When I saw the first TV ad (in July ?) I did a search for ticket sales, and the game had sold out three days before my search .

I'm going to try to make it to the game next year .

Nice change, given the abomination of the All Star uniforms that looked like a fourth grade art project. One of the great things about the All Star Game is seeing all of the players in their own uniforms, and MLB even took that away.

Interesting. I didn't know that.
