Iowa Kinsella Baseball Diamond For $5.4 Million
If you're looking for a place in Iowa, and you like baseball, well I found a nice little spot of property for you. The house is a nice little two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom farmhouse. Rather quaint. Perfect for getting away from it all. It even has some exterior buildings included in the property.
Oh, and there's this huge baseball diamond. You can play games on it, or sit in the bleachers and watch ghosts play baseball. I hear Ernie Harwell's available to call some of them.
The setting for the timeless Kevin Costner baseball film Field of Dreams, this corn-slash-baseball field - located in Dyersville, Iowa - has been put on the market. Owners Don and Becky Lansing are the sellers, and they're simply asking for $5.4 million. Buyer's market, y'all.
The couple have decided that it is finally time to retire, and are looking to unload the property on a deserving new owner. Perhaps some minor league or independent team can snatch up the place and relocate their place of business.
Or maybe Eric Byrnes can move his beer league team there. The ex-Mariners outfielder is, after all, making $11,266,266 million this season alone from an ill-advised contract given him by the Arizona Diamondbacks. He seems to be enjoying himself bashing softballs lobbed by HVAC repairmen - but can he hit Eddie Cicotte's shine ball?
Or can you? Someone please hurry and buy it before some young couple goes on House Hunters Iowa and pays an exorbitant monthly mortgage payment on it. Ease Don Lansing's pain with your stashed-away millions and inherit a piece of nostalgia - beer league or not.
