What's the Short of It?

Love baseball/softball ... love the Field of Dreams Movie Site ... and the idea of teaching kids lifelong skills through both? This is a cool way to support kids' development and growth and preserve a beloved baseball icon.

  • We are a group of people passionate about keeping the Field of Dreams Movie Site open and free for families to enjoy. We are Go the Distance Baseball based in Iowa and we bought the Movie Site and the land that came with it so we can help spread messages of hope and educate kids about life-long skills about character development, a winning mindset and ways to contribute to others in their lives during week-long tournaments here.
  • Our facility next to the Movie Site will be called All-Star Ballpark Heaven as it will be build behind the magical corn from which the Ghosts in the movie came. Theoretically, the Ghosts came from heaven to join the game on the Field, so this project depicts the nirvana that exists within the corn.
  • This campaign is important as it will help us finish our engineering and construction documents to go live with the building.
  • You will help us reach thousands of kids ages 8-18 and beyond through facilities for fantasy camps, retreats and more with a beautiful setting with the meaningful attraction of the Field of Dreams Movie Site.See what Wade Boggs, one of our owners, said about the project 

What We Need & What You Get

  • Funds are needed to finish our design and construction plans for the new tournament facility called All-Star Ballpark Heaven.
  • Our perks are items you truly can't find anywhere else! Everyone who supports our campaign will receive two tickets to our groundbreaking ceremony planned for early next year.
  • All funds will be used for those expenses, even if we don't reach our goal. We appreciate your trust and support.

The Impact

Your contribution will help us keep the Field open and free to families from all over the world while we are able to fund the design of the adjacent facility.

  • You will be a part of something very special and beloved in the hearts of millions around the globe who know the Site's special attraction for those seeking reconnection (physically or spiritually) with a loved one.
  • We are nearly ready to break ground and this will help us create our final construction plans.
  • You can see our general design here by IIW in Dubuque, Iowa, and specialty sports architect, Rick de Flon.
