The owners of the “Field of Dreams” movie site hope to draw scores of youth baseball and softball teams with the unveiling of a new master plan for the grounds this week.

Go the Distance, which owns and operators the site, announced Thursday morning an $80 million private investment to build youth baseball and softball fields, team dormitories and a hotel, among other improvements to the grounds.

"I am grateful for all that the game of baseball gave me throughout my career," Hall of Famer and Go the Distance CEO Frank Thomas said in a statement provided to the Des Moines Register, "and now I am proud and excited to lead a team that is building opportunities for players, fans and families to enjoy our national pastime and for teams to train and compete."
