DYERSVILLE, IOWA (FOX NEWS) – An iconic baseball field in Iowa made famous in the movie “Field of Dreams” sustained thousands of dollars in damage after a vandal drove a vehicle onto the site earlier this week.

Al Steffen, the field manager for the site in Dyersville, told Fox News on Wednesday the damage was discovered early Tuesday as workers reported to work.

“It’s never been this severe,” Steffen said.

The field in eastern Iowa, created for the 1989 movie “Field of Dreams” starring Kevin Costner, has hit been by vandals before, but now ruts several inches deep are visible in the center and left field.

A combination of warmer weather and recent rainfall helped loosen the ground, allowing the vehicle’s tires to sink deep into the soil.

“They picked a time when the field was very, very soft,” Steffen said.
