One of the first things I did when I arrived in the Quad Cities nearly 20 years ago was to head up to Dyersville to 'have a catch' at the Field of Dreams movie site.

Someone with less pure motivations tore up the field with a vehicle on Monday night according to the Field of Dreams Movie Site Facebook page. The damage to the turf is significant due to the wet, mild weather conditions on Monday.

The Field of Dreams Movie Site is a unique and valuable tourism site in Iowa, and part of the state's character. Let's do what we can to make sure it survives and thrives. Donate here.
