The man behind a proposed sports hall of fame and athletic complex in Sandusky said he's gearing up for a months-long fundraising campaign to make the project a reality.

LaMont "Showboat" Robinson has released new details on the Hall of Fame Sports Dome he plans to build at 1001 Fremont Ave., on the city's west side. He recently released an artist's rendering of the project and also completed a feasibility study. 

He said he has raised about $1 million toward to the $11.5 million cost, and plenty of sponsorship opportunities are available — including a $10 million sponsorship that offers recognition as a co-founder of the Sports Immortals Museum.

"The naming rights could pay for the whole ball of wax," Robinson said. He's hoping to get sporting goods companies to support the plan.
