Lexington Legends hold ‘pumpkin playoff’ game


LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56/WKYT) – The Lexington Legends hosted a trick-or-treat event before their game Tuesday evening.

It was the first-ever Legends game in October and was called the “pumpkin playoff.”

Staff members were there handing out candy for kids coming to the game, and the stadium was decked out for Halloween. They even had a pumpkin decorating station.

It ended up being good luck for the Legends who beat the Charleston Dirty Birds 6-5.

They’ll play in a winner-take-all game Wednesday night.

Spokespeople for the Legends said they’ve really missed doing these types of events.

“I thought it was the perfect opportunity to make things kind of Halloween-like, since COVID last year took that away from us, just a chance to get everyone out at the ballpark and have some fun for the kiddos,” Madison Spencer said.

The stars were out at the game too, including Pendleton County’s own Dontaie Allen, who threw out the first pitch.
