The Texas County Family YMCA is building its own âField of Dreams,â just like Kevin Costner did in the popular 1989 flick with the same name.
For the YMCA, it will be the organizationâs first off-site outdoor facilities in Guymon.
The approach to it is, if they build it they will come, just as the âChicago Black Soxâ came to the Iowa corn field in the movie.
The YMCAâs program director James Parker hopes children and sponsors will come this summer.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) â Experts speculated Tuesday that a fiery head-on collision of two trains in the Oklahoma Panhandle was likely the result of human error, though federal investigators are still piecing together evidence and havenât determined a cause.
