The MLB announced yesterday that they've developed a ticket lottery for people to purchase tickets to attend the Cubs vs. Reds game at the MLB Field of Dreams in Dyersville.

Winners of the lottery will be notified and will then have the opportunity to purchase up to two tickets and one parking pass for the once-in-a-lifetime game.

The game will take place August 11, 2022.

Those with Iowa zip codes will be able to register for the lottery. Fans must register before the lottery closes at 11am CST June 9, 2022.

The drawing for the lottery will take place on or about June 14th, 2022, with the registrants notified of their selection by email on June 15th. Tickets will be available for the winners of the lottery on June 16.

Registration will be available on the MLB's website.

If you can't afford the prices or don't win the ticket lottery, the game will be broadcast nationally on television like last year.

The chances of getting tickets will be decent, as the stadium built for the game has a capacity of 8,000 fans.
