‘Field of Dreams’ Game Live Stream (8/11): How to Watch Cubs-Reds Online, TV, Time

“Field of Dreams” receives another tribute on Thursday, August 11, when the Cincinnati Reds take on the Chicago Cubs at a retro baseball stadium in the cornfields of eastern Iowa, just steps from the field where Kevin Costner, James Earl Jones, Ray Liotta and Amy Madigan shot the 1989 film. The game will be streamed live on DirecTV Stream (free trial) and fuboTV (free trial).

The game comes 2.5 months after Liotta, who played the ghost of Shoeless Joe Jackson, died in May at age 67.

Each team will wear special uniforms inspired by the look of the franchises in the early 20th century, and Cincinnati first baseman Joey Votto and Chicago outfielder Ian Happ will be on two-way mics for the broadcast.

The Reds are considered the home team and the three-game series concludes with games in Cincinnati on Saturday and Sunday.

But first, Iowa.

This is Major League Baseball’s second round at the Dyersville site – a population of about 4,400 – after the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox put on a show last year during of the first MLB game in Iowa.
