Field of Dreams Game Recap: Cubs Won, Ken Griffey Jr. played catch with his son

The Cedar Rapids Kernels take on the Quad Cities River Bandits during a minor league game at the Field of Dreams in Dyersville, Tuesday, Aug. 9, 2022. Fod20 Jpg

The Cubs topped the Cincinnati Reds 4-2 in MLB‘s second annual “Field of Dreams” game last night (August 11th).

The game took place in a small throwback ballpark in Dyersville, Iowa, right near where the 1989 movie was filmed, one year after the White Sox topped the New York Yankees 9-8 in the inaugural game.

Last night’s festivities began with Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr. and his father emerging from the outfield cornstalks, with Junior telling his father, “Hey dad, do you wanna have a catch?” and his dad answering, “I’d like that.” The two then played catch as more parents and children joined them on the field, followed by the Cubs and Reds.
