(CNN) – Iowa baseball fans, mark your calendars: Next year Major League Baseball is heading to the Field of Dreams in Dyersville, Iowa.

On Thursday MLB announced the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees will be playing a regular-season game Aug. 13, 2020, at the site of the 1989 film. “MLB at Field of Dreams” will mark the first Major League game ever held at the site and the first game in the state of Iowa.

FOX will televise the game at 6 p.m. on Aug. 13, 2020, with the White Sox considered the home team. Information on the limited ticket availability will be announced by MLB in the coming months.

Later this month, MLB will build a temporary 8,000 seat ballpark on the Dyersville site. The right-field wall will include windows to show the cornfields beyond the ballpark. Aspects of the design will pay homage to Chicago’s Comiskey Park.

A pathway through a cornfield will take fans to the ballpark, which will overlook the famous movie location.
