Yea..The 11 Big League Dreams ARE profitable ...to Big League Dreams and not necessarily to the communities they are in. The REAL meat of this story is the taxpayers build the $25 Million project then turn it over on a 30 year contract to an out of state company (Big League Dreams) who in turn will run and maintain the facility. (basically the tax payers are building a "turn-key" facility for a private company that will have no "skin in the game") IF you want to play ball there (on a team) OR your child/friend are playing ball there you will pay an entrance fee...will be required to buy all of your refreshments THERE and will be paying for parking also. BLD will tell you that the fields will be available, for free, to the public if the fields are not reserved or in use by paying patrons from noon to 4 p.m. the trouble with that is there is no way for you to know when that will be the case. Just another tax payer funded capitol project that will take 75 to 125 or more years to be paid off...if then even...
