WHITAKER BANK BALLPARK (Lexington, KY) - The Lexington Legends Big L will be among those descending from the 410-foot-tall Lexington Financial Center Thursday, October 25. The event, called "Brave the Blue" in reference to the blue building, is a fundraiser for the Bluegrass Council, Boy Scouts of America. Each participant, including Big L, raised at least $1,000 for the Boy Scouts. More than 11,000 young people are involved in scouting in the 55 counties served by the Bluegrass Council.
Big L's attire for his rappelling adventure will help bring in a new era of Legends baseball. He'll be wearing one of the Legends new uniforms for 2013, complete with new logos and colors. The Legends recently became an affiliate of the Kansas City Royals and will have an all-new roster for 2013 made up of players under contract to Kansas City.
The Legends will have a display near the Fifth Third Pavilion at Cheapside Park, 251 W. Main Street, during the October 25 'Thursday Night Live' event. The Legends will officially unveil their new logos, colors and three styles of uniforms that will be worn by players during the 2013 season.
Fans may pick up FREE t-shirts bearing the new home uniform style, as well as FREE Big L-style mustaches. A limited number of new Legends New Era on-field caps will be available after the announcement.
The Legends open the home season April 8, 2013 at Whitaker Bank Ballpark against the Asheville Tourists, an affiliate of the Colorado Rockies.
