Life...Fun and Kentucky Real Estate


Applebees Park - Home of The Lexington Legends

Applebees Park - Home of the Lexington Legends

One thing I know for sure is that I'm not a sports nut.

Even with that said, I didn't turn down an invitation by Richmond Mayor Connie Lawson to join her for a visit to Applebees Park to see the Lexington Legends play the other night. The park built in 2001 has the distinction of being the first totally privately funded Minor League Baseball park in the United States. It can hold up to 6,994 screaming fans!

Sounds like fun...count me IN!!

 The first warning as we arrived and were directed to park was that we needed to be aware of the foul balls that popped out of the park to the right.

Parking further away seemed like an excellent idea suddenly!

Since this was my first time at Applebees Park, I was impressed with how helpful and kind the attendants were, the nicely painted building, clean manicured landscape, great food, and wonderful area for kids to play with their families. Everywhere I looked it gave me a welcoming feel.

  To watch the Lexington Legends play under the lights at night was magical.  I learned that the park is used 365 days a year for concerts and special events also.


The next one coming up will be on:

 Sept.2 and is Fan Appreciation held at 7:05PM. There will be a silent auction, fireworks and free giveaways.


Well ...I can't say that I learned much about baseball that night(I was busy taking pictures, socializing and walking around) but it goes to show you that you don't have to be a baseball fan to enjoy Applebees Park. There's something for everyone here!

P.S. I did worry all night that there was going to be a meteor size dent in my car, even though I had parked further away...
