'Field of Dreams' baseball field becoming real baseball mega-complex

Posted on

Further evidence that dreams really can come true, so long as those dreams initially have a movie made about them: The eastern Iowa Field of Dreams movie site has officially been sold to an investors group called Go The Distance Baseball LLC. As reported by CBS news, the investment group — which counts among its membership baseball legend Wade Boggs — will transform the site into a massive baseball complex with 24 fields, mainly for youth baseball and softball.

So if you and your buddies are planning to play softball in the Dyersville area sometime in 2014, it’s entirely possible that Wade Boggs will emerge from the cornfields and whisper, “If you build it, they will come.” His wallet will be enormous.
