Per Levine, Sox and Cardinals will play Field of Dreams game

Recommended Posts

I'm 100% ripping off a Reddit thread that proposed this, but depending on when the season starts, how would everyone feel about the Sox and Yankees opening the season at the Field of Dreams?

This is already gonna weird season, but it would have massive sentimental feel.

What was the original proposed date?

Mid August.

To start the season with Field of Dreams sounds great on paper. Not sure how the logistics work out. Construction on the stadium is not completed yet and I'm not sure how the virus is affecting its progress.

If the season starts sometime in June, which sounds like the hope right now, I'm unsure if the site would be ready. If the season isnt able to be underway until August, I'm not sure we'll even have a season at all.

Yeah, if there's not a season until mid-August. We have bigger problems than trying to open at the Field of Dreams.

It would be cool to start the season by playing the scene with Terrence Mann's "baseball" speech to Ray right before the game.

People will come Ray, people will most definitely come.

I am gonna predict, both the NFL and MLB will cancel their seasons.

That would mean that we would be quarantining until the end of the year.

 

I don't think that can happen without there being chaos in the streets.

I think this "quarantine" will happen roughly until about Juneish. But large gatherings, probably until next year.

These leagues would probably be ok with empty stadiums and TV money rather than nothing at all, but they still need plans for what to do if and when their own (traveling) players get sick and I don't have a good answer to that.

Actually that sounds about right. If there is some kind of vaccine. It won't even be before 2021 most likely with all the steps they have to go through. Hopefully something helpful, some way of dealing with it becomes the norm before then that can save lives.

Field of Dreams game may be the only game played in 2020.  They’ll get 50 million people watching on Tv. World Series trophy on hand. 
  1 game to win it all!

Since the yankees have dropped out I will be pissed if the Cubs are the replacement. They better not do that shit

I'd rather it be the Reds.

Why do you think it would be the cubs? And if so, why would it be that upsetting? 

The cubs have a big national draw that will bring eyeballs to the tv screen. I'd love an opportunity to embarrass them with all of America watching and make a statement game with our young players as a team to watch.

It becomes a Cubs home game.

They are on the shortlist of replacements according to wsd. And because all the chicago media coverage will be about them rather than this being a sox event. Plus iowa is all cubs fans and theyll fill up the stadium

I'm naive on the ticket situation, but I thought it was something like 8000 tickets split evenly between the two organizations with season ticket holders given priority. If that's the case, I wouldn't think Sox season ticket holders would give those up easily, but I'm probably mistaken on the ticket allocation.

If it was a 30,000 capacity stadium, I agree that would be harder to fill up against the local Cubs fans, but 8000 shouldn't be too hard to fill out quota.

For what it's worth, I wasn't saying this sarcastically. If it's the Black Sox and we need a Midwest team, and if the Central Divisions are going to be merged, make it the team the Black Sox tossed the World Series against.

This isn't going to be a public event.  With as few tickets as will be available this is going to all be VIPs. Add in social distancing and you could even be at a fraction of the seats, and that is if they let anyone in at all.
