Big League Dreams works with cities, counties and special districts to help them bring world-class recreational facilities to their communities at little or no cost to the taxpayer. Our parks have become so popular that we are expanding to cities all over California, the West and South.
Big League Dreams is the premier developer and operator of recreational sports facilities in the country. Our parks have been recognized as the "Best New Sports Complex in America" by the Sportsplex Owners and Developers Association (SODA), the "Best Public/Private Partnership" by the League of California Cities and the Complex of the Year in 2003 and 2006 by USSSA (United States Specialty Sports Association). We have also won many other awards including the 2008 Innovations in Park and Facility Development from the Texas Recreation and Park Society Region II.
Our parks bring many benefits to the regions in which they operate. Big League Dreams brings a top-quality playing experience for local families, through our world-class facilities in a variety of sports. Big League Dreams facilities offer baseball, softball, soccer, indoor soccer, in-line hockey, basketball, and sand volleyball for all ages. We are best known for our baseball/softball fields that are designed and built as replicas of famous, historic major league stadiums. Youth and adults can play on a replica of Chicago's Wrigley Field or New York's Yankee Stadium (and others) or even hit one off the "Green Monster" in a replica of Boston's Fenway Park!
Huge economic benefits are created through our multi-use facilities being booked almost every day of the year, often more than a year in advance for tournament play and special events. Examples of past special events include: national baseball and softball championship tournaments, concerts (Wynonna Judd), other sporting events (Pepsi All-Star Softball Game, World Championship Boxing, etc.), Easter Sunrise services, 4th of July celebrations, dog shows, art shows, kickball leagues, and many other local and regional events. This is in addition to the tournaments which are hosted just about every weekend, helping to fill area hotels and generate large amounts of TOT tax and business for nearby restaurants and retail. For example, our park in West Covina hosted more than 400,000 visitors last year (over 35,000 from out-of-town) generating an estimated $13 million economic benefit to the city.
All of our parks host many group/corporate events each year as well. Companies that have held their special events with Big League Dreams include Nike, Toyota, Mutual of New York, Sony, Anheuser Busch, Buena Vista Home Entertainment, Hartford Insurance, Southwest Airlines, XTO, National Oilwell Varco, Schlumberger, Outback Steakhouse and many others.
The advantages of building a Big League Dreams Sports Park to a city, county or special district with recreational facility needs are many. Our public partners incur no maintenance or operations costs once the park is constructed, which saves our public partners an average of more than $500,000 each year in maintenance costs. Additionally, our public partners participate in the revenue generated by Big League Dreams. Big League Dreams has paid over $11,000,000 in revenue sharing to our public partners since our founding. Taking both maintenance savings and revenue sharing into consideration, our public partners are realizing more than $1 million EACH YEAR in direct financial benefits along with hotel TOT and sales tax revenue - all while serving more of their families with first class recreation facilities and creating an average of 75 full and part time jobs per park. This partnership truly creates a win-win environment for the city and the community.
