MLB The Show 21 on PlayStation lets you play at the Field of Dreams for free.
This week, Sony releases a major update for MLB THE SHOW 21, bringing a historic stadium to the popular baseball game on PS4 and PS5.
Fans of the legendary 1980s baseball film Field of Dreams will be able to live out their sporting ambitions this week when the movie’s stadium joins MLB The Show 21.
Field of Dreams is an Oscar-nominated fantasy film starring Kevin Costner, in case you haven’t watched it. Ray Kinsella, played by Kevin Costner, is pushed to build a ballpark in his Iowa cornfield.

The Field of Dreams update will be available on PlayStation systems starting August 10th.
