Long-time owners of Heaven selling their farm:

"DYERSVILLE, Iowa — Mike Dollar had a faraway look as he watched his wife, Laura, hit baseballs to their son, Jesse, who fielded them at shortstop in an Atlanta Braves T-shirt. Abby, their daughter, played catcher. The sun was bright, the sky was clear and the cornstalks were waving in the breeze.

“'They really captured the purity of it,' said Dollar, who had driven 900 miles from their home in Georgia so they could frolic here. 'This field, we’d hate to see it change.'

Change, it turns out, comes creepingly at the Field of Dreams Movie Site. In the film 'Field of Dreams,' a farmer hears a voice telling him to build a baseball diamond in his cornfield so the ghosts of the disgraced 1919 Chicago White Sox can return to play."
