Feels like it should be 1 in 5 years or 1 in 10 years. Any more frequent than that and I think the novelty would get tired pretty quickly.
I think an every other year rotation keeps the novelty. MLB should pick 3-4 significant locations around the country like this to play in each year and then rotate between them.

I think MLB is still in a bit of a wait-and-see mode before making it permanent and an annual thing.
IMO they can make it work as an annual event for the next decade. Enough MLB teams within 4-5 hours that can rotate through as home team with decent size fanbases: Cubs, W-Sox, Twins, Brewers, Cards and even Royals.

It will definitely help if game can match-up play-off level teams.

And that way they can justify having black out rules for all of those teams in Iowa.

I think it's a necessary evil to keep the game there in the future. A chance to make a permanent stadium.
I hope that’s true and they come back. It will lose its luster over time but it’s SUCH a special and cool thing

They got another perfect August night. What are the chances two years and two perfect nights of weather? 4 days ago it was 95 and felt like 110 at this time. Tonight it's 79 and feels like 81 in Dubuque.
