Wade Boggs buys a piece of the Field of Dreams, plans to develop it

The ... purchase will ultimately result in the erection of All-Star Ballpark Heaven, a youth baseball and softball complex that will ultimately feature 24 fields. Phase 1 of the project is to include the completion of 12 of the fields, along with 60 team clubhouse, and is expected to be completed in 2014 in time for the tourney season.

Erection? Yeah, no surprise Wade Boggs is involved in this deal.

Digging up valuable farm land to build baseball fields? Wade Boggs must be the biggest horse's ass in three counties.

Ray Kinsella: Twenty-six years ago, for five minutes you came within... y-you came this close. It would KILL some men to get so close to their dream and not touch it. God, they'd consider it a tragedy.

Wade Boggs: Son, if I'd only gotten to be a real estate developer for five minutes... now that would have been a tragedy.

Is it okay if I just picture ole Wade and his long-lost cousin Timothy Busfield sitting side by side at a picnic table next to a baseball field just housing a huge plate of chicken wings - just destroying it with grease, sauce, and fat scraps clinging to their fingers and faces and all of a sudden Busfield looks around and he appears to be completely alone because Boggs has willed himself invisible?
