DYERSVILLE, Iowa (AP) --- Several former major league baseball players are scheduled to participate in a game this fall at the "Field of Dreams" movie site in eastern Iowa.

The game is set for Sept. 14 in Dyersville.

More than a dozen former players are scheduled to participate. They include Hall of Fame players Johnny Bench, Wade Boggs, Rod Carew, and Carlton Fisk.

Organizers of the event are calling it the "Team of Dreams." Proceeds from the game will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

The All-Star Ballpark Heaven group owns and operates the "Field of Dreams" movie site. It's set to be part of a large baseball and softball tournament complex.
