Man Pleads Guilty to Field of Dreams Vandalism

 A man has entered a guilty plea after being charged with 2nd Degree Criminal Mischief.

20-year-old Austin Pape entered his plea on September 17 after allegedly damaging the "Field of Dreams" site on January 22.

Pape originally pleaded not guilty to charges that he drove on the field made famous by the 1989 "Field of Dreams" movie.

The field near Dyersville has had thousands of visitors over the years.

After the damage gained attention across the nation, over $15,000 was raised to help fund repairs to the field.

Pape's sentencing is scheduled for November 13 at 1 p.m.
