Ever ridden past the Field of Dreams on RAGBRAI?  Ever wanted to do it again?  Better do it this year then, because the clock is ticking on what is arguably the most famous baseball field in the world.

“Go The Distance LLC” is a development group including Wade Boggs (yes, THAT Wade Boggs) that has purchased the Lansing farm, site of the Field of Dreams, for $3.4 million dollars. Their intention is to create a baseball complex consisting of 12 diamonds (with plans to eventually increase that to 24) and a 60-team clubhouse on the site in time for the 2014 ‘tournament season’.

In small syllables, this sucks!!  And while it is probably already a done deal, there is a petition at change.org (couldn’t post the link; go to the site and search for “Field of Dreams) urging “Go The Distance LLC” to relocate their proposed complex to a more suitable location and leave the Field in its iconic state.  I urge everyone here to go there and add their names.
