Farm in 'Field of Dreams' for sale

The 193-acre farm in Iowa where Kevin Costner starred in "Field Of Dreams" has been put up for sale by its owners, with an asking price of $5.4 million, according to the Des Moines Register.

Yes, for only $5.4 million, you get the farmhouse, the baseball diamond that was cut into the cornfield, and the some-65,000 tourists that still visit every year. Ray Liotta will cost extra.

Former major league pitcher Ken Sanders is helping oversee the sale, and he has some guesses as to who will buy it:

"It would be easy to guess a baseball player, a movie buff or even someone from the film's cast. But the movie's reach has been so widespread, potential buyers don't necessarily fall within those demographics. It could end up being a nonprofit organization, a land trust or a foreign investor. We might all be surprised."
