When the League City council years ago signed off on building Big League Dreams, a youth sports complex modeled after Major League Baseball stadiums, the project was supposed to pay for itself, Mayor Pat Hallisey said. But it cost the city money then, and it still does today.

“You almost can’t overstate how bad this deal is” I agree with you, Mr. Long. I can see what's coming a mile away. Big League Dreams League City LP will declare bankruptcy and walk away, leaving the city and its taxpayers to pay the bills. The parent company, if any, will be insulated from those bills. The individual investors won't have to pay either. This way, profits will be privatized, and losses will be foisted on the public. Wonderful (not). Is the land at the field of dreams worth the $15 million still owed on the municipal bonds?

Big League Dreams has proved to be just that; A bad Dream.
