Tonight is Major League Baseball’s Field of Dreams game. The Yankees will play the Chicago White Sox at a field a few hundred yards away from where the movie of the same name was filmed. There are no bleachers in the outfield. It’s a field of corn, just like in the movie.
The Spikes return home for their final two games oF the season, tonight and tomorrow. Last night, State College beat Williamsport, 6-1. Elsewhere last evening, Harrisburg blanked New Hampshire, 2-0, while Altoona and Erie were rained out.
