Movie Site – Field Of Dreams – is purchased by local Chicago Couple

Chicago Baseball couple buys Field of Dreams

"Field of Dreams"

 

I loved the Movie “Field of Dreams” and have read the “Catcher in the Rye” as well so I’ve been a baseball fan for a long time. I am happy to see this old 190+ acre farm in Dyersville, IA has been purchased and the “Field of Dreams” ballpark and movie set will be saved. The Des Moines Register just ran a story about a Chicago couple that has purchased this old baseball diamond, and the 190 acre farm along with the old movie set. 

As a fan of baseball, this movie, the voice of Darth Vader and CNN (can you find the common link?) I am happy to see this field and tourist site will be saved. However I just can’t imagine that the buyer’s dream of turning this farm into a 12 – stadium baseball / sports complex will be possible. Dyersville, IA is about 45 miles due west of Galena, IL on US-30. A bustling town of 4,216. I sure hope I am wrong. After all it was the advise of the “voice” that Ray Kinsella (Kevin Coster) followed in the movie the proved to be true then; “If you build it, they will come.”
