I am saddened to announce the passing of a great lady, Denise Stillman.It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our CEO and Chief Preservationist, Denise Miarecki Stillman. Denise lost her battle with a very rare form of cancer called hepatic endothelial hemangioendothelioma on Wednesday, November 7, 2018. On behalf of our investors, management team and employees, we extend our deepest sympathies to Denise’s family. Denise was an extraordinary woman who brought her unwavering experience, tenacity, energy and more to Go The Distance Baseball when she purchased the Field of Dreams Movie Site from the Lansing family in 2012 and founded this company. Denise has truly touched the lives of everyone she interacted with, and she will forever be missed.
Go The Distance Baseball has lost a visionary and motivated leader with the passing of Denise Stillman. While we honor Denise’s commitment and passion for All-Star Ballpark Heaven and the Field of Dreams Movie Site, our company continues to look forward. Denise never wavered in her commitment to the goals of Go the Distance Baseball, and made necessary progression plans including the appointing of Tom Mietzel, as CEO and Justin Dillashaw as Chief Financial Officer to join the executive team. Our Management Team has made significant progress in assuring her vision is carried on and becomes reality. Together, we have identified new, exciting means to both efficiently operate our existing businesses and obtain the remaining capital necessary to break ground on the construction of our youth baseball/softball tournament complex, All-Star Ballpark Heaven, to be built around the Field of Dreams Movie Site in Dyersville, IA. Our entire staff remains fully committed to constructing our mega complex and becoming America’s premier venue for fun family memories surrounding seasonal baseball and softball tournaments. We will help athletes from around the country reach their full potential on and off the field in the sports of baseball and softball through training facilities and elite staff dedicated to the advancement of each player.
As for the Field of Dreams Movie Site, we will remain open and continue to create life-long memories for those who visit our site and wish to experience the magic of our baseball shrine. Our management staff continues to cultivate exciting, family-friendly events that will soon be offered at the Field of Dreams Movie Site, one of which will be our 30th Anniversary Celebration which be held on Father’s Day Weekend 2019. More details will become available on www.fodmoviesite.com and on our FaceBook page, Field of Dreams Movie Site.
