Minor League Baseball and the Quad City River Bandits announced this morning that the a game between Quad City River Bandits and the Cedar Rapids Kernels will be moved to the newly built and iconic MLB park next to the historic Field of Dreams movie site.

Just like last year's game between the Chicago White Sox and the New York Yankees, who wore throwback jerseys, the teams will do something similar.

The River Bandits will become the Davenport Blue Sox (the team's name in the 1913-1916 seasons as well as the 1929-1933 and 1934-1937 seasons), and the visiting Kernels will become the Cedar Rapids Bunnies (their name from 1904-1932), according to a press release from the MiLB. 

“We are thrilled to be able to host a game at such a perfect location for baseball fans from Eastern Iowa and around the world,” said Quad Cities owner Dave Heller. “This is an opportunity that we have hoped for since MLB announced plans to build a ballpark in Dyersville, and to see it come to fruition is really exciting for our organization, and for the Kansas City Royals, our players and Bandit fans from across the region.”

Ticket information will become available at a later date for the August 9th game, taking place just days before the MLB's next Field of Dreams game between the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds.

Last year's Field of Dreams game was quite the spectacle, complete with a walk through a cornfield, hot air balloons, and an appearance from Ray Kinsella himself - Kevin Costner.

The game was a tight knit game, with a walk-off two run homerun from White Sox's Tim Anderson, complete with fireworks. Check out the view from the stands:
