DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Hall of Famer Wade Boggs is investing in a new project at the site of the famous "Field of Dreams" baseball field in Dyersville, Iowa.
Boggs, a third baseman for the Red Sox and the Yankees and a Hall of Fame inductee in 2005, is lending money and his name to the project.
The site made famous by the movie is part of a larger $38 million complex of 24 baseball and softball diamonds on 193 acres to be called The All-Star Ballpark Heaven.
It's under development by Denise and Mike Stillman. They've formed a company, Go the Distance Baseball, to buy the movie site and surrounding land. Financial details of Boggs' investment haven't been disclosed.
