The iconic baseball diamond, two-bedroom house, and 193-acres from the 1989 movie Field of Dreams in Dyersville, Iowa, was sold. About 65,000 people visit the free-admission site every year to play pick-up baseball and view the scenes from the movie. The new owners plan to develop the site, building a baseball/softball complex for national youth baseball tournaments.
