If you’re hoping to visit the “Field of Dreams” movie site the week of Major League Baseball’s game between the White Sox and Yankees, well, you better have a ticket.

Go The Distance, which runs the site of the iconic baseball movie, announced that the grounds would be inaccessible to fans from Aug. 8-16. The White Sox and Yankees will play an MLB game on Aug. 13 on a specially-made field located next to the field and on the grounds.

So, if you want to get on the grounds during the days leading up to the game, you’ll likely need one of those heavily sought after tickets. A spokesperson for MLB told The Des Moines Register on Thursday that information regarding ticket plans for the game will be made in March or April. There is expected to be a public offering.

The site has been a hot-spot tourist attraction for baseball fans who have flocked to the diamond built in the middle of a Dyersville cornfield, made famous by Kevin Costner’s 1989 blockbuster film.
