More Funding for More Baseball at Dyersville’s Field of Dreams
This week's minor and major league baseball games at Dyersville's Field of Dreams will be far from the last games played at the historic field. According to the Dubuque Telegraph Herald, some major funding for the field has just come in.
According to the TH, The City of Dyersville has received a $12.5 million state grant for the creation of a permanent baseball stadium at the Field of Dreams. When Dyersville officials applied for the funding earlier this year they said they intended to put it toward the creation of a permanent multi-use stadium capable of hosting professional baseball games, collegiate baseball tournaments, and other year-round events.
This is Iowa Ballpark Inc, a new non-profit, will have oversight of the 3,000-seat stadium.
