A bunch of farmers want to crush Matthew Perry“s “Field of Dreams” — as in the famous baseball diamond — because they think it will end their dreams … of crop dusting.
Just last month, the former “Friends” star joined an investment group (Go the Distance Baseball, LLC) that is planning to build a national youth baseball and softball tournament and training campus on land next to the field made famous by Kevin Costner”s movie.
But locals are crying foul — the Residential & Agricultural Advisory Committee thinks the project will prevent farmers from hauling manure … and make it next to impossible to move farming vehicles and complete aerial spraying … aka crop dusting.
They also think increased traffic will cause noise pollution in the area.
Now the group has fired off a letter to Perry claiming, “It is no exaggeration to say that our very way of life is at risk.”
No word on whether Perry has actually seen the letter.
