The sale for the Field of Dreams baseball site in Dyersville has been finalized.

Go the Distance Baseball LLC made the announcement Tuesday. The purchase price was $3.4 million.

The business plans to turn the site into a youth baseball and softball complex. The first phase of construction is set to begin this spring.

In addition, Go the Distance Baseball LLC will be going to court.

According to the Dubuque Telegraph-Herald, Citizen’s Group, the residential and agricultural advisory committee, is opposed to the development of the complex.

Citizen’s Group is being sued for allegedly interfering with contracts that could cost developers state tax incentives.

That case is expected to begin in court next week.
