DYERSVILLE, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- Before getting ready to play ball, repairs must first be done at the Field of Dreams.
Vandals hit the movie site with a vehicle, digging deep, muddy tracks through the middle of the ball diamond. On their Facebook page, the Field of Dreams Movie Site posted pictures on Tuesday of the deep tracks.
"We cannot fathom why a soul on this planet would desecrate this holy ground," is a statement on the social media site. "We pray for whomever did this to our special place that they find peace in their hearts."
The Field of Dreams is a baseball field just outside of Dyersville. It was the site of the 1989 movie by the same name, starring actors including Kevin Costner, James Earl Jones and Ray Liotta.
The movie site's Facebook page plans to fix the damage by Opening Day. That's set for April 1.
A gofundme account has been set up to help pay for repairs to the field.
