FIELD OF DREAMS

 
WHEN WORKING ON A BASEBALL TRIP SCHEDULE IN THE EARLY SPRING OF 2005, I SAW THAT I COULD MAKE A SIDE TRIP TO DYERSVILLE, IOWA AND VISIT THE "FIELD OF DREAMS" MOVIE SITE. BEING A FAN OF THE FILM AND HEARING SOME POSITIVE REVIEWS, I DECIDED TO MAKE THE SIDE TRIP. IT IS ONE I WILL NEVER FORGET AND ONE THAT I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
 
BASEBALL PLACES LIKE BASEBALL PARKS SEEM TO LEAN TOWARDS THE ELECTRONICS OR THE EXTRAS. THE "FIELD OF DREAMS" SITE, LIKE WRIGLEY FIELD OFFER A LOT BY DOING VERY LITTLE.

A view of the site from  the Corn

DRIVING THROUGH THE CORN FIELDS OF IOWA, THE VIEW FROM AFAR WHICH I CAN ONLY IMAGINE WOULD BE EVEN MORE SPECTACULAR AT NIGHT WITH THE LIGHTS ON, THE FIRST VIEW OF THE "FIELD OF DREAMS" MOVIE SITE.

THE FIELD OF DREAMS MOVIE SITE
LOCATION ::: DYERSVILLE, IOWA
MY FIRST VISIT ::: JULY 6, 2005

The House - Field of Dreams site

 
IT IS ALL HERE .. THE HOUSE, THE CORN, AND THE BLEACHERS WHERE THE LITTLE GIRL WAS CHOKING ON THE HOT DOG.
 
FAMILIES PLAYING ON THE FIELD WITH OTHER FAMILIES .. FATHERS AND SONS PLAYING PEPPER IN RIGHT FIELD ... A DIFFERENT GROUP HAVING A CATCH IN LEFT FIELD.
 
ALL WITHOUT ANY FRILLS, JUST A THICK GRASS FIELD AND A WHOLE LOT OF CHARM.

If you build it, he will come

I WALKED THROUGH THE CORN AND I LISTENED .. I HOPED TO HEAR THE WHISPER .. I DIDN'T BUT IT DIDN'T CHANGE THE FEELING OF THE PLACE OR THE VIEW.

BEFORE I LEFT I HAD TO TAKE ONE MORE LOOK .. I'LL NEVER FORGET MY 30 MINUTE VISIT TO A FIELD SURROUNDED BY A CORN FIELD.

Who owns what and who gives back
