Legends lose season opener to Charleston, brace for Orange assault

Sometimes a loss can leave a team seeing red. With Thursday night's 6-1 loss to the Charleston RiverDogs, though, the Lexington Legends are seeing orange. A crowd of 7,999 saw the Legends open their 11th season in the renamed Whitaker Bank Ballpark. Now, Legends president and CEO Alan Stein must pay up. A University of Kentucky graduate, Stein continued his custom of "guaranteeing" victory in the opener or else ... he would "dress like Bruce Pearl" until the team wins. Stein will be decked in a Tennessee-orange sport coat Friday.
