The Lexington Legends will host Madison County Night at Whitaker Bank Ballpark Thursday, July 9.
The Legends, class A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals, will play the Savannah Sand Gnats, an affiliate of the New York Mets, in a doubleheader Thursday night. The first of two seven-inning games will begin at 5:05 p.m.
Richmond’s own DJ Shawn Tye will be spinning the hits on the plaza pre game, and the winner of Madison’s Got Talent, Chloe Spencer, will sing the national anthem between games of the doubleheader. Richmond and Berea-based Honor Guards will present the colors before the anthem.
Several groups from local businesses in Madison county will be in attendance, as will representatives of the Chamber of Commerce. A group from Old School Customs, a Richmond-based car club, will also attend, and several members will bring their cars for display and to take part in a parade around the ballpark.
