Debate still simmers over Field of Dreams site

DYERSVILLE, Iowa (AP) — Twenty-five years after "The Field of Dreams" debuted in movie theaters, the Iowa farm where it was filmed remains at the center of simmering debates.

The film, which premiered in Iowa 25 years ago Sunday, turned the land into the state's most famous farm. It also set off a land dispute that has become bigger and more divisive as years passed.

The latest involves an Illinois couple that wants to develop the farm around the field into a $74 million baseball and softball complex for traveling youth tournament teams. The proposed All-Star Ballpark Heaven has sparked feuds and lawsuits between neighbors and against the city of Dyersville.

As the debate rages, cast members are scheduled to return in June for the 25th anniversary celebration.
