Our attraction is fun for the entire family and those of all ages, baseball fans or not” said spokesman for Go the Distance Baseball, LLC, the entity that owns the Field of Dreams Movie Site. “Cornhole is extremely popular throughout Iowa and the Midwest, and having the ability to showcase a wholesome game, in addition to baseball, that brings people together is an opportunity we couldn’t pass up.”

Friday and Saturday will feature four Doubles Qualifier tournaments, with the top six teams of each qualifier advancing to Sunday’s final bracket.

“If there is a more perfect partnership than the American Cornhole Organization and the Field of Dreams Movie Site, I couldn’t tell you what it is”, says ACO Founder and President, Frank Geers. Geers continues: “We heard the voices from within the endless rows of corn at this legendary field and are set to bring together two uniquely American pastimes; rooted both in life-changing nostalgia and modern family fun. We could not be more thrilled to walk side by side with the ghosts and the guests we will welcome to be a part of our Inaugural ACO Go the Distance Festival.”
