Inspired by an afternoon game of Wiffle ball and Field of Dreams, two high school students in Greenwich transformed a vacant, overgrown lot into a miniature Fenway Park and began hosting Wiffle ball tournaments for their friends. Instead of being properly inspired by the ingenuity and spirit of the kids, neighbors demanded the lot be closed immediately:

It turns out that one kid’s field of dreams is an adult’s dangerous nuisance, liability nightmare, inappropriate usurpation of green space, unpermitted special use or drag on property values, and their Wiffle-ball Fenway has become the talk of Greenwich and a suburban Rorschach test about youthful summers past and present.
