A Late One with the Legends, LEGENDARY comeback falls short on LEGENDARY Opening Night


The Lexington Legends returned to their rightful place, the baseball diamond at Legends Lane just off of North Broadway. 

Throwback threads, fans young and old, local celebrities, and smiles could all be found within the confines of Legends Field. The Legends, recently on a two-year hiatus from their home, were embraced by 3,317 Lexingtonians as they emerged from their dugout for the 6:45 First Pitch.

Dustin Beggs, the University of Kentucky alum, would get the start for the hometown team. A Strike right down the aforementioned North Broadway was his First Pitch followed with the roar of the Best Fans in Baseball. I could only find the right words through a wrestling quote. As Ric Flair once flamboyantly woo’d “With a tear in my eye..”

Legends baseball was back in the Bluegrass.

I know that the tears had to have been the rare feeling of emotion, because no dust was to be found in the recently renovated facility.

Beggs would open the game with back-to-back K’s in the scoreless Opening Inning.

High Point would strike first on a DJ Burt blooper laid down in Right during the Second Inning. I don’t care, no one asked.

The “ZOOperstars” provided entertainment between innings. The sensational dance moves of Tommy LaSwordfish (knee slapper) were a sight to behold. It sure was something.

The Legends would fall behind six runs over the course of the next SIX Innings until a two-run Eighth put the Bluegrass boys within Three.

Were we in for a Legendary comeback? Let’s find out.

In the 9th Inning, the Legends LEAPED on High Point Pitching to ultimately tie the game up at Six-All.

Free baseball AND Opening Night with the Legends? Sheeesh, what a lucky guy I am.

In news that no one cares about, High Point won the game by 1 in the 10th Inning.
