DYERSVILLE, IOWA- No professional baseball on the diamond this year where the Field of Dreams movie was filmed in Iowa. The president of the group that owns the field says the Northern League won't have teams ready to play this season. The group Go the Distance Baseball plans to build a sports complex near the Field of Dreams, including a field that could be home to a Northern League team. The group wants to expand the complex to 24 fields for youth baseball and softball. Negotiations to find an owner for the local Northern League team are still ongoing. The movie Field of Dreams was made in 1989 and starred Kevin Costner.
