What's going on with the Ohio Sports Hall of Fame Museum?
I'm curious if you have any new information on the Ohio Sports Hall of Fame Museum on U.S. 6 by Ohio 2. The building has been there for a couple years now but it seems the site still remains dormant. What's going on? Nicole from Sandusky
LaMont "Showboat" Robinson said they are still working on finding funding for the project.
He said they have located a potential funding source for $15 million and are in talks with a company from Virginia. Robinson also plans on approaching Dan Gilbert, who owns the Cleveland Cavaliers, to bring him in as an investor and for naming rights.
Robinson envisions the complex fulfilling two purposes:
• A hall of fame honoring those making a name for themselves playing on Ohio sport teams.
• A sporting complex where teams can compete in contests, such as basketball.
