Field Of Dreams Driver Admits to Damages
If you damage it, you will pay?
Authorities in Iowa say the man charged with driving amok over the patch of land featured in “Field of Dreams” has admitted to the crime. Court records in Dubuque say Austin Pape entered a guilty plea Monday, the day he was to stand trial on a felony charge of criminal mischief. He’ll be sentenced in November.
Authorities say Pape caused $5,500 in damage when he drove over the ballfield/cornfield that was the setting for the 1989 movie starring Kevin Costner and James Earl Jones. Some 30 years after it hit theaters, the movie still draws people to the field, where they run the bases and walk through the surrounding cornfields.
