Stache-A-Palooza

Whitaker Bank Ballpark-Lexington, KY:  Despite having an easy winter, the weather isn’t cooperating a lot with us early this season.  It was a balmy 35 degrees on Saturday, but at least we had the sun shining to help keep us warm during the Lexington Legends Stache-A-Palooza event.  Brian was happy to meet the Legends mascots Big L and Pee Wee for the first time.  He also had a blast on the slide and bouncy castle.

Inside, we were able to sample some of the new ballpark eats the Legends will be introducing this spring.  My favorite was the bacon wrapped chicken nuggets.  We were lucky enough to win a couple of small prizes at the wheel, but Brian wasn’t too enthusiastic about a credit card holder or a towel.  They had some face painting available, but Brian declined on that.  We still had a busy day ahead and he didn’t want to deal with it all day.

After our fun inside was done, we decided to check out the field.  It still looks like a great place to watch a game, and I still plan on doing just that this spring.  I just hope our spring is as warm as our winter!  We spent a little coin in the gift shop and spent some more time on the bouncy stuff before calling it a day at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.  It was a fun event, and always good to get a preview of what to expect from the Legends this summer.

Sneak Peak

30912763534_393a3f77a9_zWhitaker Bank Ballpark-Lexington, KY:  While my dad was visiting from Michigan, we decided to take a little trip over to Lexington and see what it had to offer. Unfortunately, not much is going on anywhere tourist-wise, but I definitely wanted to stop by and see where the Lexington Legends played ball, as I wasn’t able to make it to a game there over the summer.

Being a fan of the South Atlantic League, I’ll be able to see some familiar teams play against the Legends as well.  Trevor had some luck, and found a ball from the Ohio Valley Conference that must have been playing some college games there.  I took just a few photos, and this is just a sneak peak at the fun we plan on having in 2017.  Have a safe and happy new year, and we’ll see you all at the ballparks the spring.
