Chicago Cubs Field of Dreams Jerseys, Hats, Shirts and More!

The Chicago Cubs defeated the Cincinnati Reds 4-2 on Thursday August 11th, 2022 in the latest edition of Major League Baseball's Field of Dreams Game. Like last year's contest between the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees, the contest was played at the movie site in Dyersville, Iowa.

The Cubs got out an early lead, scoring three runs (all with two outs) in the first inning. Seiya Suzuki opened the scoring with a double that made it 1-0. Nico Hoener then scored Suzuki, growing the lead to 2-0, before scoring himself on an Ian Happ double. The Cubs would add another run in the fourth inning, on a Nick Madrigal single, but that initial outburst proved to be enough to secure the win.

Field of Dreams is a 1989 American sports fantasy drama film written and directed by Phil Alden Robinson, based on W. P. Kinsella's 1982 novel Shoeless Joe. The film stars Kevin Costner as a farmer who builds a baseball field in his cornfield that attracts the ghosts of baseball legends, including Shoeless Joe Jackson (Ray Liotta) and the Chicago Black Sox. Amy Madigan, James Earl Jones, and Burt Lancaster (in his final film role) also star. It was theatrically released on May 5, 1989.

The film received generally positive reviews from critics, and was nominated for three Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Original Score and Best Adapted Screenplay. In 2017, it was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
