Field of Dreams Sold

they build it, will they come? Mike and Denise Stillman are betting on
it: the couple, longtime fans of the movie "Field of Dreams,"
have just bought the Iowa farm where movie was shot and plan to turn it
into baseball fields.

The Stillmans said they plan to preserve the iconic diamond while
building about a dozen other fields and an indoor training dome on the
193-acre property, turning the land into a Midwestern hub for youth
baseball and softball practice and tournaments.

"It’s the right time for this," said Denise Stillman,
39, a healthcare business consultant. "We just know that it’s going
to be a huge success."

The Stillmans said about 65,000 people visit the site near Dyersville
every year, playing catch or running the bases on the same field where
the ghosts of past ballplayers emerged from the cornstalks to play ball
in the movie, which starred Kevin Costner and James Earl Jones.
