IOWA

Build it and they will come ...

E X P E R I E N C E T H E M A G I C . . . People young and old from every comer of the globe believe in the "Field of Dreams" and its ambassadors, the "Ghost Players." The dream, began by the enormously successful Universal Pictures film "Field of Dreams," is alive today and more vivid than ever. The field itself remains a major American tourist site. Nestled within a Dyersville, Iowa cornfield, it is a destination visited by more than 800,000 people over the past fifteen years. The movie, based on W.P. Kinsella's book "Shoeless Joe" and released in 1989, was an Academy Award nominee for Best Picture of the Year. The field is open April through November from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. From Memorial Day until Labor Day, the hours of operation are 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. NO ADMISSION IS CHARGED. While at the Field, make sure you visit our souvenir store by third base and look over our unique gift items. The store's hours are the same as the Field's hours of operation. No trip to the ballpark would be complete without ice cream, popcorn, and a cold beverage. You can purchase all of these at Left & Center Field of Dreams. We also provide baseballs, bats, and gloves for your use at no charge. Baseball fans of all ages will agree that a visit to the "Field of Dreams" is about as close to heaven as you can get. This season, go down swinging at the world's most famous ballpark, the "Field of Dreams".
