Is This Heaven?

On August 13, 2020, Dyersville, Iowa will play host to the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox. The two teams will play a three-game series at the movie site that now attracts tourists who love “Field of Dreams.” I’ll be the first to admit that I have never seen the Phil Robinson film, but I can appreciate Major League Baseball’s ongoing efforts to expand the game to all corners of the country and world. Earlier this season, the Tigers and Royals played the first ever pro game in Omaha, Nebraska in conjunction with the College World Series. Next weekend, the Pirates and Cubs will play a regular season game in Williamsport, home of the Little League World Series. Later this month, MLB will begin construction on a temporary 8,000-seat ballpark at the Dyersville site for the pro game. The plan is for a pathway through a cornfield to take fans to the ballpark, which will overlook the actual movie location. It is good to see MLB using the Yankees as a cornerstone for new initiatives, such as the London Series and now this project.

.@MLB is building it, and we are coming! MLB Field of Dreams is becoming a reality and we’re excited to be a part of it next season. Also, sorry Costner, but this poster wins. pic.twitter.com/l05kWK1Tmt — New York Yankees (@Yankees) August 8, 2019

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
