DYERSVILLE, Ia. (KWQC) - Nearly three months after the iconic Field of Dreams was vandalized, minor league baseball teams in our area are headed to Dyersville, Iowa to help with clean-up. Front office employees with the Clinton LumberKings and QC River Bandits will help repair sod, grass and dirt around the field. This is the fourth time the clean-up event has been rescheduled, but officials said it will happen Monday morning regardless of inclement weather.
