2010 Baseball Trip: Day 5-Dyersville, IA

Field of Dreams Movie Site: Our next stop was in Dyersville, Iowa for the ‘Field of Dreams’ movie site. Not much to write about this, but is was just cool being on the field where the movie was filmed. We played catch, took some infield, and I pitched off of the mound a bit. They do a nice job of keeping it in good shape for the tourists like me. Oh, yeah, it’s May, so NO corn stalks in the background. It would have been cool to get a pic of me walking out of the corn, but we got some good ones anyway.

  1. Nice pics! Must have been fun to see where the movie was shot. It’s one of my all time favorites. I’d probably start crying if I went there. lol.

  2. Nice blog entry on the Field of Dreams. Never took the time to visit there when I lived in Illinois. Saw an article this evening that the property is for sale.

    Jane-yes it was fun, just playing catch on it is cool.
    Hooksfan-it’s worth checking out next time you’re in the area. I saw it was for sale, too. Let’s hope whoever buys it takes good care of it.
    Jeff-It’s probably not too far a trip from where you’re at. Again, it’s worth it.
    Kirsten-it is in pretty good shape. Not like it was in the movie, but it still looks nice.
