One of the first things I did when I arrived in the Quad Cities nearly 20 years ago was to head up to Dyersville to 'have a catch' at the Field of Dreams movie site.

Someone with less pure motivations tore up the field with a vehicle on Monday night according to the Field of Dreams Movie Site Facebook page. The damage to the turf is significant due to the wet, mild weather conditions on Monday.

A GoFundMe campaign is underway to raise money for repairs and the installation of a security system to deter future vandalism.

The Field of Dreams Movie Site is a unique and valuable tourism site in Iowa, and part of the state's character. Let's do what we can to make sure it survives and thrives. Donate here.
