Parkhurst Fulton County’s “Field Of Dreams”

generations of Little Leaguers had been unknowingly playing ball on the same hallowed grounds that hosted early 20th century baseball greats like Cy Young, for whom the award for the best pitcher in baseball is named. Famed major league short stop Honus Wagner, whose baseball card recently sold for $3.2 million at auction, played there, too, as did Archibald “Moonlight” Graham, also known as “Doc” Graham, who was immortalized in the 1989 Kevin Costner movie “Field of Dreams.”

Caroga Arts Collective – Welcomes the World

They come from places like Brazil, Korea, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, Finland, Portugal, and Canada, as well as from 22 states. They play with such well-known organizations as the Seattle Symphony, the Baltimore Symphony, the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, and Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble. Over the course of a summer, they’ll present 40 performances, drawing over 6,500 audience members to enjoy an eclectic mix of genres including classical, bluegrass, jazz, and pop.
