You may have heard that the "Field of Dreams" site near Dyersville, Iowa, was severely vandalized not long ago, with thousands of dollars of damage done to the ball field at the movie's site, which remains a popular tourist attraction decades after the iconic movie was released.

 

This week, even with snow on the ground, staff and grounds crews from the Cedar Rapids Kernels, Quad Cities River Bandits, Clinton Lumberkings and Iowa Cubs came together with other volunteers to work on repairs.

 

Pretty cool story and just one example of how these minor league organizations work to benefit communities.

Nice spot. I remember seeing that story a while back and felt pretty bad about the owners especially considering the costs involved. That's pretty cool to see the clubs give back to the communities like that.

Good write up on this from MiLB.com, as well.
