'Field of Dreams' to become baseball complex

The New York Times reports that the Iowa farm featured in the 1989 movie “Field of Dreams” has been sold. The new buyers reportedly plan to maintain the famous field… and add a youth baseball complex.

Don and Becky Lansing sold their 193-acre farm, listed last year for $5.4 million, to a group of buyers from Chicago led by baseball-loving couple Mike and Denise Stillman. (The sale price was not disclosed.) The Lansings had the property in the family for more than 100 years, and Don grew up in the white house with the wraparound porch.

The group, Go the Distance Baseball L.L.C., plans to add a youth baseball complex called All-Star Ballpark Heaven alongside the movie field (which was built by Universal Studios). A dozen new fields, plus an indoor center for tournaments are planned additions to the Dyersville, Iowa property. FULL POST
