The movie Field of Dreams saw supporting characters snicker at Kevin Costner's character Ray Kinsella as he used farm equipment to plow under his corn to build a baseball field.
However, Kinsella got the last laugh, as thousands of cars eventually lined up to visit the field. In real life, the Iowa farm where the field was built by Universal Studios was recently put up for sale. Don and Becky Lansing have owned the land, which has been in their family for more than 100 years.
"It's really time for us to head to the locker room. Maybe that sounds corny. I don't care," Becky Lansing said to the Associated Press. "We really would just love to become spectators. We want to sit in the bleachers."
The Lansings are looking for $5.4 million for the 193 acre property, which includes the famous field and the home featured in the 1989 flick.
Field of Dreams was nominated for three Academy Awards, including Best Picture, which it lost to Driving Miss Daisy. It was also nominated for its writing and music.
