Manfred made the comments speaking at a summit held by Sports Business Journal, adding that the league plans to “go to locales where they don’t ordinarily play Major League Baseball.”

The Field of Dreams Game is already set to return next year when the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds plan to meet in Dyersville, Iowa.

The 2021 Field of Dreams Game drew nearly six million viewers, making it the most-watched regular-season game since 2005.

In fact, it was so successful, it has even drawn inspiration for the NBA to try a similar event in its future, too.
