DYERSVILLE, Iowa (AP) - The president of the group that owns the Field of Dreams in Dyersville, Iowa, says the site won't host professional baseball this year.
The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1iTSLjd ) that Denise Stillman, who leads the group Go the Distance Baseball, says the Northern League won't have teams ready to play this season.
Go the Distance Baseball plans to build a sports complex near the Field of Dreams that initially would feature six fields, including one that could be home to a Northern League team. The group wants to expand in the future with ultimate plans for 24 fields for youth baseball and softball.
Stillman says plans to find an owner for a local team are ongoing.
The Field of Dreams was the site for a 1989 movie starring Kevin Costner.
