Our Lexington Legends started off super hot while down in Augusta taking on those GreenJackets, winning the series four games to one. But, it was a different story in the next few games as the Romes Braves roughed up our hometeam, sweeping the Legends in four straight games. Even with the four losses though, the Legends, still hold a share of 1st place in the Southern Division in the S.A.L. league. With a combined record of 17-13, the Legends are tied with division rival the Greenville Drive.
Also, some bad news to report on the homefront…the Legends lost one of their all-stars during these last set of games due to injury. Second baseman Albert Cartwright will be out for several weeks because of a broken bone in his left forearm, suffered when he was hit by a pitch in Sunday’s (5/3) game. Infielder Andy Simunic joined the Legends from extended spring training and now is in the lineup.
Applebee’s Park will be hosting another 8-day homestand beginning this Monday, as the Legends hook up with the Charleston RiverDogs in a four game set. Tonight, (Monday) actually happens to be Kids Eat Free night, where ALL kids 12 and under get to come to the ballpark and get a voucher for free dinner thanks to our good friends at Members Heritage Federal Credit Union.
During this homestand, the Legends have ALOT of cool things happening…on Friday, May 15th…Dora the Explorer ventures to Applebee’s Park. You can be apart of an exclusive meet and greet with Dora for only $15. Call the Legends box office for details at 859.422.RUNS.
