'Field of Dreams' up for sale

The owners of the site in Iowa where the baseball movie "Field of Dreams" was filmed more than 20 years ago are putting the property up for sale. The asking price is $5.4 million.

The farm has been in the family of Don Lansing for more than 100 years. He and his wife Becky are ready to retire and want to sell the property. Up for sale is the baseball diamond, a two-bedroom house, six outbuildings, including a concession stand, and a 193-acre parcel that included the cornfield from where "Shoeless" Joe Jackson and others emerged to play baseball (shown above).

The "Field of Dreams" is in the middle of a cornfield near Dyersville, Iowa. The movie, starring Kevin Costner, was released in 1989.
