The Iowa Cubs gave new meaning to the phrase “farm club” this morning as the Pacific Coast League franchise teamed up with Garst Seed to plant corn outside of Sec Taylor Stadium. I-Cubs assistant general manager Jim Nahas says it was the idea of club owner Michael Gartner. Nahas says the “Field of Dreams” in Dyersville has corn, so Sec Taylor should too.The corn is behind the main entrance to the stadium near the Raccoon River and Nahas says with the wet spring the corn won’t need watered.Steve Klein is the director of sales and marketing for Garst Seed which also provided the tractor for the planting. He says they’re planting four rows of “85-50-BT” that’ll be very visible as it grows.Klein says fans will be able to monitor the progress for the remainder of the season.
