“Field of Dreams” ballfield vandalized by vehicle

One of cinema’s most iconic baseball fields suffered thousands of dollars in damage this week when a vandal apparently tore up the landscaping with a vehicle.

Denise Stillman, owner of Dyersville’s Field of Dreams movie site, said…it appears that a vehicle was driven onto the field, causing significant damage.  ...She anticipates repairs will cost thousands of dollars.  “Someone who is disturbed had some agenda to damage the field,” [said] Stillman, [who] believes it will take an entire season for the field to be completely repaired.

Al Steffen, the site’s field manager, said he was called out to the scene in the morning to inspect the damage.  “There are gashes up to four inches deep in the outfield,” Steffen said. “Whoever did it was really able to dig in.”  ...It’s not the first time someone’s driven a vehicle out onto the field.  However, the combination of warmer weather and steady rain loosened the soil enough for the vehicle to cause serious damage.

If you build it, they will send it to kingdom come.
