"The Field of Dreams" MLB game is in less than a month, and people all over social media are buzzing with questions on how they can get tickets. Originally scheduled for 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic had to be pushed to this summer.

Both teams, the New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox, who were originally signed on to play at the field last year will be returning. Both teams played important roles in the movie.

One of the biggest questions from baseball and movie fans alike has been, how do I get tickets to go?

Believe me, I've been searching high and low for information about this for several months now. The MLB has given no official word on whether or not tickets will be sold to the public. Initially, there were talks of Iowa fans being entered into a lottery of some sort for tickets. There is no word on whether or not this is still happening.

The stadium that they've built for the MLB game is expected to hold approximately 8,000 people. However, this number might be slightly altered slightly for the sake of COVID precautions.

Even if these tickets aren't made available to the public, there is a chance for you to get pretty close to the action of the MLB game...but it will probably cost you a pretty penny.
