I know living in Kentucky, the sport that reigns supreme is basketball, and then as a close second, it’s football. My husband grew up in Los Angeles and remembers watching Dodgers games and even attending games at Dodger Stadium. Growing up in basketball country, no one that I was close to followed baseball. It wasn’t until I met my husband that my love of baseball grew. Over the past couple of years, baseball has quickly become my favorite sport. Hands down. We both even flew out to California in October 2018 to attend the World Series!
I’m sure the majority of you know that we have a Minor League baseball team located right here in Lexington! The Lexington Legends are in the South Atlantic League and are the Class A affiliate for the Kansas City Royals (previously they were the Class A affiliate for the Houston Astros).
The Lexington Legends have been around since 2001. I remember attending a few games right after their inception. Back in 2001 and 2002, I spent my summers at the University of Kentucky for an internship. One of the activities that we did on our off-time was attend a Legends game!
