On August 12, Major League Baseball is headed to the great state of Iowa. MLB will have a special Field of Dreams game in the state. The Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees will play next to the cornfield, a nod to the classic Field of Dreams movie from 1989. And in commemoration of the event, San Diego Studios has launched a new Field of Dreams player program, with the final prize being a 99 OVR Signature series card of iconic Pirates outfielder Roberto Clemente. Let’s go over what you need to do to complete the program.
To complete this program, you must acquire 100 Points. We’ll go over how to hit that mark in a second, but before then, take a look at the rewards you can earn from this program:
- 1 Points – Diamond Field of Dreams Stadiums
- 5 Points – Diamond Profile Icon
- 10 Points – White Sox Home 1919 Jersey
- 11 Points – Yankees Road 1919 Jersey
- 15 Points – Diamond Profile Nameplate
- 20 Points – Diamond Legend Bat Skin Choice Pack
- 25 Points – Prime Tom Henke (95 OVR)
- 30 Points – MLB The Show 21 Standard Pack (x3)
- 35 Points – 2500 Stubs
- 40 Points – Ballin’ is a Habit Pack

- 50 Points – Gold Glove Brooks Robinson (99 OVR)

- 100 Points – Signature Roberto Clemente (99 OVR)
There are three 99 OVR cards you can get from this program. Let’s take a look at the three, starting with Brooks Robinson.
Let’s go over how you can get to 100 Points. First off, you should attempt to complete the Field of Dreams Showdown and the special Conquest. Here’s a look at the map for the special Field of Dreams Conquest:
The Showdown and Conquest yield 20 points each, so if you complete both, you’re almost half of the way there. At that point, you should attempt to complete the 12 moments. Each yields 2 points, and if you complete all 12, you’ll get 24 points, as well as 4000 Stubs.
After that, it’s up to you as to how you want to hammer out the remaining 36 points. You could take a shot at playing the Field of Dreams event. Five wins in that will get you an additional 16 points, but keep in mind that it is an online event. Plus, it’s for a limited time. While the program will be up past the end of the event, you’ll only be able to accumulate points through that point until August 19.
You can also complete special online and offline missions. Here’s a breakdown for each one:
- 10 Hits with Yankees (Online) – 5 Points
- 10 Strikeouts with White Sox (Online) – 5 Points
- 30 Total Bases with Yankees – 5 Points
- 10 Extra Base Hits with White Sox – 5 Points
- 6 Extra Base Hits with Awards players – 5 Points
- 20 Total Bases with Milestone players – 5 Points
- 15 Strikeouts with Signature or Prime players – 5 Points
- 10 Strikeouts with Prime Tom Henke – 5 Points
- 8 Hits with Awards (Gold Glove) Brooks Robinson – 5 Points
- 12 Strikeouts with Milestone Felix Hernandez – 5 Points
How to get the 99 OVR Tim Anderson
There is one more thing we should cover for this program. After the Field of Dreams game ended, SDS added a special 99 OVR Topps Now card of White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson. Anderson hit a walk-off two run homer to give Chicago the victory.
MLB The Show players can acquire 10 more additional points to the program, plus the 99 OVR Anderson, by completing five new Moments that were made available. The five Moments are all based upon events that occurred during the Field of Dreams game.
