The Dyersville, Iowa cornfield was sold to Go the Distance Baseball LLC in 2011, but the paperwork was finally completed this week.
Go the Distance, which purchased the 193 acre-property for $3.4 million, will be converted in a 24-field youth baseball and softball complex called All-Star Ballpark Heaven.
The construction on the complex is slated to begin this spring and the new owners hope to open for games by 2014. Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad approved $21.6 million in tax breaks for the construction of the complex which is expected to cost $38 million to build.
