Field of Dreams owner says no pro baseball in 2014

DYERSVILLE, Iowa — The president of the group that owns the Field of Dreams in Dyersville, Iowa, says the site won't host professional baseball this year.

The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports that Denise Stillman, who leads the group Go the Distance Baseball, says the Northern League won't have teams ready to play this season.

Go the Distance Baseball plans to build a sports complex near the Field of Dreams that initially would feature six fields, including one that could be home to a Northern League team. The group wants to expand in the future with ultimate plans for 24 fields for youth baseball and softball.

Stillman says plans to find an owner for a local team are ongoing.

The Field of Dreams was the site for a 1989 movie starring Kevin Costner.
