DES MOINES, IOWA (September 30, 2021) — Governor Kim Reynolds released the following statement today in response to the new ownership of the Field of Dreams.

“I’m excited about the new ownership of the Field of Dreams property in Dyersville, and want to thank Frank Thomas for his investment in Iowa.

“This iconic movie site has drawn millions of people to our state over the years, most recently during the first-ever MLB game held in Iowa between the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox.

“The Field of Dreams is symbolic of what makes Iowa such a special place, and I'm proud to showcase it for the nation.

“Now, with Frank’s vision, new leadership and strong state and local partnerships, I’m confident that the Field of Dreams will become a world-class attraction, and further expand economic development opportunities for Dyersville, its surrounding communities and our state as a whole.

“The State of Iowa is committed to the continued success of this site, and I look forward to working with Frank and his team soon.”
