Kentuckians give Legends a boost in chilly home opener

Spring baseball on a cold, 38-degree night paid off for the Lexington Legends and the hearty fans in attendance at Whitaker Bank Ballpark as they won their opener 7-4 against the Lakewood BlueClaws Thursday night. The announced crowd of 3,311 and 27 dogs got a chance to see Kentucky basketball star Alex Poythress and a competitive if a little sloppy South Atlantic League game that saw both of the Legends’ native Kentuckians figure in the outcome.
