"Field of Dreams"......SOLD

"Please know that you will always be welcome here"

.....Donnie and Becky Lansing

The farm, ballpark and movie site in Iowa, a popular tourist attraction since the 1989 movie was filmed there, has been sold. The deal will close in the fall.

However, the good news is that there is only one thing changing about this magical place. All Star Ballpark Heaven, is a 24 field "state of the art" facility for training, tournament play, and development of youth baseball programs, being built on adjacent farmland.

Field of Dreams, the movie, is based on the book, "Shoeless Joe", by W.P. Kinsella, about a fictional farmer inspired to build a baseball field in his backyard which initiates a journey of myth, fantasy, and self realization.

I've always liked that line from the film, "If you build it, he will come." However, there is another phrase that affects me more. When James Earl Jones as the character Terrance Mann says, "Go the distance". It applies to much more than this film.

"Go the distance". It is through the process of following through, that a dream is realized.

What does the "Field of Dreams" look like today?
