Major League Baseball
In Iowa, a temporary ballpark was built to host a game between the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox.

Major League Baseball hosted a special game this month in Iowa. The first MLB game ever in the Hawkeye State.

In this edition of Reading Baseball, Pete Peterson looks back on his own Field of Dreams as a youngster and remembers them as far less dreamy than the ones in the Iowa corn field.

Reading Baseball is a series of essays and commentaries by Richard “Pete” Peterson, author of Growing Up With Clemente and the editor of The St. Louis Baseball Reader.
