DES MOINES, IA – Sept. 12, 2022 – Mediacom Communications will provide live-action television coverage of the first college baseball game to play at the Field of Dreams movie site in Dyersville, IA on Sept. 16, 2022 at 6:30pm. Mediacom video subscribers can watch pregame activities, coach interviews and the first pitch thrown by Tony Oliva before Briar Cliff University and Luther College play on Mediacom’s MC22 (Ch. 22, 822) at 6:00pm.
Briar Cliff’s baseball program has been drawing attention in recent months, with facility upgrades and training camps with MLB scouts. Briar Cliff ended the 2022 spring season with a 28-21 overall mark, and seven players on all-GPAC teams. Luther College ended the 2022 spring season with a 22-20 overall mark and have made six appearances at the NCAA Division III National Tournament.
The Field of Dreams movie site became a landmark in Iowa after the movie was released in 1989. The MLB hosted the Yankees vs. White Sox at the site in Aug. 2022, which marked the first-ever regular season MLB game to be played in Iowa and drew over 5.9 million viewers.
Mediacom video subscribers can watch the live coverage on television on MC22 CH. 22, 822, or at MC22.net. Game replays will be televised starting at 1:30pm on Sunday, Sept. 18 and continuing throughout the week. Program schedules are posted on MC22.net.
