    DYERSVILLE, Iowa - Independent league baseball is about to become part of the new development next to the Field of Dreams movie site in Dyersville.

    The Northern League, an independent professional league with a strong history in the Midwest, plans to bring a team to Dyersville that will call All-Star Ballpark Heaven its home, according to a news release issued Friday.

    The Northern League, originally founded in 1902, is the nation's oldest independent baseball league, and is being reorganized for its 112th season with a projected opening day in May 2014. Its mission is to provide and promote premier independent minor league professional baseball and family-oriented, affordable entertainment. Independent baseball teams are unaffiliated with Major League Baseball (MLB) clubs and operate as their own entities, with the responsibility to procure their own players.
