Field of Dreams owners plan huge baseball/softball complex

DYERSVILLE, Iowa – The new owners of the “Field of Dreams” site in Iowa plan to use $80 million in private investment to make the popular tourist attraction a destination for youth baseball and softball tournaments.

The Des Moines Register reports that Go the Distance said in a news release Thursday that the money will be used to build baseball and softball fields, team dormitories and a hotel, among other improvements. Go the Distance’s CEO is longtime Chicago White Sox star and hall-of-famer Frank Thomas.

The site in rural Dyersville, Iowa, has long been a popular destination, since the 1989 Kevin Costner movie.
