Lexington Legends Pack Mothers Day with Events for the Famiy


In honor of Mother’s Day, the Lexington Legends have a packed day of fun, giveaways and memories to last until next Mother’s Day. The festivities will begin at 11:30 a.m. before the Legends take on the Greenville Drive at 2:05 p.m. with children 12 and under getting in free.

“This Mother’s Day we are happy to offer a variety of experiences for families while at Whitaker Bank Ballpark. Families can spend time together before the game begins then we treat the mothers in attendance with giveaways throughout all nine innings,” said Legends President/CEO Andy Shea.

Fans with sensory sensitivities and their families will be able to enter the ballpark at 11:30 a.m. to take part in pre-game festivities they previously may have had to skip. There will be no loud music or public address announcements made during this time. Legends players will be available for autographs and the Toyota Triple Play Zone will be open, also. When gates open for the public at 12:30 p.m., children and their families can make their way to Guest Services to pick up one of the thirty Sensory Safety Kits provided by UK HealthCare for the remainder of their time at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.

When the gates open for the public at 12:30 p.m. families can take the field and participate in Playtime in the Outfield. Fans of all ages will be able to take in a game of catch with Legends players before they take on the Drive. Concession stands will also be open for hungry fans to have a bite to eat and grab a moist Pepsi just in time for the game. It is also Free Ticket Sunday thanks to JiF, allowing kids 12 and under to receive a free box seat ticket.

Throughout the ballgame, the Legends will have nine innings of prizes from both Kendra Scott and Burn Boot Camp for mothers. Mothers can win prizes ranging from necklaces and earrings to two larger, grand prizes from Kendra Scott as well as various items such as tank-tops from Burn Boot Camp. In order to be eligible to win, fans must register at the table near the front gates at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.

The Legends, a Class A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals and member of the South Atlantic League, play all home games at Whitaker Bank Ballpark in Lexington, Kentucky. For ticket information, call (859) 422-7867 or visit LexingtonLegends.com.
