‘Field of Dreams’ Bill Passes Legislature, Sent To Governor


The Iowa House approved SF 2329 which could give up to $16.5 million in tax breaks for the project, known as All-Star Ballpark Heaven. The incentive approved by the Legislature would allow the complex to retain state sales taxes generated on site for up to 10 years after it opens – up to $16.5 million.

The project would be built around the famous ball field near Dyersville a 193-acre development featuring 24 youth baseball and softball fields, an indoor “sportsdome” facility, dormitories, an amphitheater and a ropes course. Like the original, all the diamonds would be built into cornfields.

Developers say All-Star Ballpark Heaven could create more than 500 jobs.

The project is expected to cost $38 million
