Gilbert taxpayers’ Big League nightmare

By Jim Walsh and Srianthi Perera | East Valley Tribune

Big League Dreams looked like a game-winning, grand-slam home run for Gilbert when it opened in 2008, with fields reminiscent of Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium drawing baseball and soccer tournaments and serving as a major tourist attraction.

Instead, Big League Dreams has struck out for taxpayers, with the town shutting down the facility as a safety hazard on July 7 while lawyers battle over millions of dollars in a contentious pair of lawsuits and countersuits.

Even before the cases go to trial, the big losers appear to be taxpayers as well as baseball and soccer players unable to use the padlocked facility – whose walls could collapse, according to the town.
