If You Build It, He Will Come – You Can Play On The Field Of Dreams [VIDEO]

“If you build it, he will come.” Who doesn’t recognize that quote from Field of Dreams?  The 1989 baseball flick starring Kevin Costner about a son rekindling a relationship with his father through the sport by way of the 1919 Black Sox, is most remembered for the iconic field that Costner’s character built smack dab in the middle of an Iowa Corn field.  Not only is the field real and still in existence 23 years later, but you can actually play some ball on it!

While researching places for my annual “everyone should do this once” vacation, I stumbled upon an article talking about the baseball field from the movie, Field of Dreams.  I was shocked to learn that the field not only exists but is fully operational after all these years.  The gravy?  You can actually play on the field.  How awesome is that!?

According to the website, you can “Bat a few balls, play a little catch, run the bases or sit and dream on the bleachers. Don’t forget to bring your favorite bat, ball and glove.”

April 1st – November 30th, 9:00 AM -6:00 PM, the field is open and admission is free!  There are all sorts of souvenirs as well.  I know, I know, Iowa is a heck of a long drive – but seriously, I could play ball on The Field of Dreams diamond!!

If you’re ever out that way, or you want to plan an awesome vacation like myself, here is address:

Field of Dreams Movie Site
28995 Lansing Road
Dyersville, Iowa 52040

What do you think?  Would this be an awesome “must do” vacation for me?  Would you want to play catch in “Heaven”?
