Big League Dreams - Big League Dreams knows what amateur athletes want.
Named Best Sports Complex by the United States Specialty Sports Association twice in a 5-year period, Big League Dreams has garnered a range of awards over its 13-plus years of operation.

Big League Dreams began in 1998, established by two brothers, Rick and Jeff Odekirk. Former baseball players themselves, the two sought to bring the major league experience to amateur youths and adults. Operating replica stadiums at 10 locations throughout 4 states, including California and Texas, Big League Dreams parks are home to nearly 30,000 baseball and softball league and tournament teams.
With an experienced staff of sports park designers, operators, and instructional personnel, Big League Dreams is in the business of turning fantasy into reality. The company delivers results to its community, corporate, and promotional partners as well as its players. Big League Dreams works closely with host cities, allowing them to set all fees and policies. With more than 6 million fans through the gates in 2010 alone, the company has helped increase local tourism as well as spending. In fact, Big League Dreams’ business has been responsible for the creation of at least one new hotel in each resident city. Employment is another benefit; each facility has added between 60 and 80 new jobs to the area.
In addition to facility rental, businesses can take advantage of many customized advertising, marketing, and promotional opportunities. With a highly specific audience and personalized promotional plans, Big League Dreams delivers on its promise of exposure and brand recognition. The company specifically tailors advertising programs to each client, with a range of options that includes wall advertisements, promotional items, team sponsorships, web visibility, and other benefits.
Corporations often utilize Big League Dreams grounds for their company outings, meetings, and promotional events, which provides added visibility for advertisers.
