COOPERSTOWN – When P.J. Mellana spent a post-graduation week in Cooperstown with his dad in 1997, he never imagined that, one day, he would own property in the land that baseball built.

“We love it here,” he said. “Last summer, my son PJ was on a traveling team, and he played at All-Star Village. We just fell in love with the area.”

So Mellana, who lives in La Habra, Calif., recently bought a three-bedroom property in Milford that he has dubbed “Dreams Farmhouse.”
