Hey everybody! I'm glad to be back visiting with you on a daily basis. If you've ever listened to Mid Ohio's Country WNCO, then we're probably already friends. If not , let me introduce myself. I'm Matt Appleby, a Lexington native and Ashland High School graduate who's been on the air in mid Ohio since the winter of 1980. And yes that is my real name (who'd make that up?) My wife Kelly and I make our home in Mansfield and our daughter Sara is out on her own working as a case manager RN for a home health care agency. And while this is my first opportunity to DJ on Y105, I have been a fan of this station for a long time and I love the music. I'd be glad to have you as a Facebook friend, too. Thanks for tuning in weeknights on Y105!
If you buy it, they will come. That's what an investment group that includes Hall of Fame third baseman Wade Boggs is hoping. Last week Go The Distance Baseball LLC completed an oft-delayed deal to purchase the farm and field for $3.4 million dollars. The firm hopes to turn the iconic property, featured in the 1989 movie Field of Dreams, into multiple baseball and softball tournament and training fields in the spring of 2014. All-Star Ballpark Heaven will initially feature 12 fields and 60 "clubhouses" for lodging before adding more fields in 2017. The "Field Of Dreams" presently attracts 65,000 visitors a year.
