Vandal damage Field of Dreams site

UPDATE: Crowdfunding campaign launched to repair, protect Dyersville movie site 'Field of Dreams' Park Vandalized by Vehicle; Damage Estimated to Be $15K

The owners of Dyersville's most-famous landmark are asking fans to help fix the vandalized field.

The field was created for the movie Field of Dreams starring Kevin Costner.

A gofundme account was launched to help cover the cost of repairs and bankroll a security system.

A vehicle vandalized the Dyersville, Iowa, Field of Dreams movie site Monday by driving across the baseball diamond, according to John Kruse of the Telegraph Herald.

Stillman said the sprinkler system was damaged in addition to the grass, and repairs could take an entire season to complete. They're now setting their goal at $15,000 to fix the baseball diamond and install a security system.

Al Steffen, the field manager for the site in Dyersville, told Fox News on Wednesday that the damage was discovered by workers reporting for duty early on Tuesday morning.


"Someone who is disturbed had some agenda to damage the field", Stillman told the newspaper. "Whoever did it was really able to dig in".

"It's disappointing that this would happen at this time", Steffen said. Though most everyone thinks he's insane to tear up his cornfield, Kinsella builds the diamond and people come from miles around to see it. "We won't be able to do anything for months".

"We need to wait until the spring to figure out how much we're going to need to tear up".

There are no security cameras at the site, so field officials have been unable to identify the guilty vehicle.

Stillman said repairs will continue through the summer but that the field will remain open. Costner's character, Ray Kinsella, hears a voice telling him "If you build it, they will come".
