... many times she has viewed this movie. Let me just say she has worn out five VHS tapes and three DVD's.
To be there was just great, to be able to walk on the field, walk around the bases, and to see the house that was in the movie, the white picket fence, the bleaches that you can sit on was wonderful. The bonus, it costs you absolutely zero to do all that.

We orbited the field once, dashed into Dubuque to pick up a rental car, then headed right back to the ball field.
