The Lexington Legends will open their 14thseason on Thursday, April 3, 2014 when they take on their nearby South Atlantic League rivals, the West Virginia Power, at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.
The opening game will be the first in a seven-game homestand to start the season, which will be the Legends’ second as the class A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals. The season includes 70 home games, along with a wide variety of promotions and entertainment.
“The Legends finished a successful 2013 season with the best pitching staff in the South Atlantic League and earned several individual honors,” said Legends Director of Ticket Operations David Barry. “We look to build on our foundation with the Royals organization in 2014. The Legends will continue to bring the Lexington and central Kentucky areas the safe, clean, affordable, family-fun entertainment that has been our mission since 2001.”
The 2014 schedule features 12 home games in April, 15 in May, 12 in June, 14 in July, and 17 in August. There are 10 full weekends -- Friday, Saturday and Sunday games – on the home schedule.
Popular promotions such as Thirsty Thursdays, education days, fireworks nights, military appreciation, special nights for charitable organizations and many others, as well as some of the top entertainment acts on the minor league circuit, will be part of Legends baseball in 2014.
The Legends offer a variety of season ticket plans, which are on sale now. Company and group outings may be booked now as well. Individual game tickets will be available for sale in March. Game times will be announced at a later date. For more information, call the Legends box office at (859) 422-7867 or visit www.lexingtonlegends.com.
