Iowa’s world-famous “Field of Dreams” is for sale.

The baseball diamond is part of a 193-acre tract that Don and Becky Lansing have had in their family for more than 100 years.

The Lansings are asking $5.4 million for the field and surrounding farmland plus the house used in the movie, two souvenir stands and six other farm buildings.

'Field of Dreams' site for sale (guess the asking price) | desmoinesregister.com | The Des Moines Register


Barry Bonds could buy it and turn it into his "Field of Dreams."

I'd like to see Kevin Costner buy it and keep it as sacred baseball ground. When I was there 10 years ago or so, it was the site of an ongoing battle between the owners of the infield and the farmhouse, and the corporate owners of left field. Each had their own gift shop, and each had signs explaining why you shouldn't shop at the "other side's" store. It was terrible for someone who loves that movie and expected a sentimental visit. From what I hear, that has been resolved in the past decade, but I'm worried something similarly crass could come back with this sale.
