Baseball Fans Completely Torn About The Stadium’s Concept And Design
This Field of Dreams stadium is getting a ton of mixed reviews. Some are absolutely loving it while others hate the idea. Many are hopeful the corn field will still be present. Others believe the stadium design removes the spectacle of the field in general.
Not Field of Dreams any more then.

The allure of it is a baseball field in the midst of fields of corn. This ruins that. https://t.co/Sl26NbkHTs
