Ackley will never forget where he came from

His mother told him all the time while he was in the minor leagues. And she’s still telling him today. Every day, Joy Ackley reminds her son, Major League star Dustin, just how much support he has back home in Stokes County. Every time the Ackley’s go out in Stokes County, people always ask them about Dustin and wish him nothing but the best as he embarks on a journey that millions dream about every single day.
