Hall of Famer Wade Boggs is investing in a new project at the site of the famous "Field of Dreams" movie baseball field in Dyersville, Iowa.

Boggs, a third baseman for the Red Sox and the Yankees and a Hall of Fame inductee in 2005, is lending money and his name to the project.

The movie site is part of a larger $38 million complex of 24 baseball and softball diamonds on 193 acres to be called The All-Star Ballpark Heaven.

It's under development by Donnie and Becky Lansing. They've formed their own company, Go the Distance Baseball, to buy the movie site and surrounding land.

Financial details of Boggs' investment haven't been disclosed.
