The Fresno City Council balked at taking any action to revive the failed Granite Park baseball fields. Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin made the pitch to council members. She wanted them to approve letting a company called "Big League Dreams" negotiate turning Granite Park into a major amateur sports facility. Swearengin saw the company as a savior for the now abandoned complex. She told the council, "If there is a path forward it is because of Big League Dreams."
