The History of Anaheim’s, New York’s, and Chicago’s Famous Ballparks Presented by Big League Dreams

Big League Dreams brings the spectacle and awe of Major League Baseball ballparks to local communities by working with their officials to construct replica ballparks and other facilities. What makes Wrigley Field and other famous stadiums so unique? Their history, which Big League Dreams seeks to capture in every replica park.

In 1999, the Los Angeles Angels renovated their home field, Angel Stadium, at a cost of $100 million. For significantly less, your town can have a perfect Angels’ diamond and trademark rock in the centerfield of its very own. Now known as the Angel Stadium of Anaheim, the ballpark first opened its doors in 1966 and welcomed Nolan Ryan, now a Hall of Fame pitcher, some years later.

Constructed in 1914, Wrigley Field played host to the Chicago Cubs for their 99th season in 2011. As satisfied patrons take the mound in their replica of Wrigley Field, they doubtlessly recall the many famous moments that the model recalls: Game three of the 1932 series when Babe Ruth pointed to a specific bleacher, then slammed a home run right to that spot moments later; the 1917 pitching duel between Cubs’ Jim Vaughn and the Reds’ Fred Toney, where both men threw no-hitters for nine straight innings before Cincinnati’s Jim Thorpe finally drove in the game’s only run in the 10th inning.

For most of us, such defining moments in professional baseball only occur in Major League stadiums, and at great expense. With Big League Dreams, they can happen right across the street. Visit http://www.bigleaguedreams.com to learn more.

Big League Dreams’ Replica Baseball Fields

Increasingly, tournament organizers are embracing the idea that replica stadiums can provide a highly satisfactory experience to players, while also reducing organizational headaches. Big League Dreams currently leads the industry with over 11 profit-producing ballparks in major urban centers in California, Texas, and Arizona. Smaller versions of famous parks, such as Wrigley Field, Fenway Park, and Yankee Stadium, these replicas allow adults and children to experience what it’s like to play in a world-class facility, but on a smaller scale. Indoor soccer facilities are also available, and retractable domes are now an option for cities in cold weather areas.

Each Big League Dreams park offers snack bars, stadium seating, batting cages, a playground, and at least one restaurant. Sporting leagues can schedule tournaments a year in advance, and the facilities are available for company softball games, birthday parties, and even weddings. Participating cities have been earning an estimated $300,000 to $500,000 per year, while also attracting additional investment from hoteliers and sporting retailers.
