Owner of “Field of Dreams” Movie Site Loses Battle with Cancer

The owner of The Field of Dreams Movie Site in Dyersville has passed away.

Denise Stillman lost her battle with a rare form of liver cancer on Wednesday.

Stillman purchased the famous ball diamond and iconic farm from the Lansing family in 2011. She founded Go the Distance Baseball with the vision of adding to the property a youth baseball/softball tournament complex, All-Star Ballpark Heaven. Operations Manager Roman Weinberg says Stillman was a motivating leader who will be deeply missed.

Weinberg says the company is committed to honoring Stillman’s memory and fulfilling her dream of getting her ballparks built.

The Field of Dreams Movie Site also plans to continue with preparations to host a 30th Anniversary Celebration on Father’s Day Weekend next summer.
