The Lexington Legends will welcome the first Lexington native to play for the team in its 15-year history as they return home for seven games beginning Wednesday.
Anderson Miller, an outfielder who played at Lafayette High School and Western Kentucky University, was selected by the Kansas City Royals in the third round of the June 2015 draft. After signing with the Royals, he played in one game for the Arizona League Royals and 10 games for Burlington in the Appalachian League before being promoted to Lexington.
Miller joined the team Saturday, when the Legends were on the road in Charleston, W.Va., and played in two games for the Legends against the West Virginia Power.
Wednesday's game, which begins at 12:05 p.m., will be his first home game. The Legends are also planning a Homecoming night for Friday to recognize Miller's ties to Lexington, to Lafayette High and WKU.
Never miss a local story.
"We're excited to have Anderson Miller here with the Legends," said Legends President/CEO Andy Shea. "This is the first time we've had an opportunity to welcome a hometown player to the team. Anderson will be a great representative of Lexington wherever his baseball career takes him, but we're glad that it's brought him home for now."
