CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) – Ninth Ward Ald. Anthony Beale's dream has become reality with the opening of a $20 million community center in the Pullman neighborhood on the Far South Side.

The center has three turf fields and two hardwood floors good for a variety of sports.

Not every child enrolled at the center is in it for the athletics. Every student enrolled will get tutoring through high school graduation.

"We're going to produce smart athletes at this facility," Beale said.
