Anderson HR for Chisox, Walkoff End in Field of Dreams Game
DYERSVILLE, Iowa (AP) — Tim Anderson hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning into the cornfield to end the Field of Dreams game in cinematic fashion. The Chicago White Sox outslugged the New York Yankees 9-8 in the first Major League Baseball game in Iowa. Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton each hit two-run homers in the top of the ninth off Liam Hendriks as the movie-themed throwback event became a home run hitting contest into the cornfield. There were eight longballs in all, two by Judge in front of the crowd of 7,832. The event was delayed by one year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Commissioner Rob Manfred says MLB will stage it again in 2022, with the teams to be determined.
