UK FOOTBALL | Coach Mark Stoops Night at Whitaker Bank Ballpark

06/13/2018 03:23 PM

The Lexington Legends baseball team hosted ‘Coach Mark Stoops Night’ at Whitaker Bank Ballpark on Tuesday night, as the Kansas City Royals single-A affiliate faced off with the Columbia Fireflies, an affiliate of the New York Mets.
Lexington won 2-1, in a shortened game due to rain.

The first 1,000 fans through the gates received a Stoops Bobblehead and Coach Stoops himself was on-hand to toss out the ceremonial first pitch.

Afterwards, Stoops spoke with the media and said he hadn’t practiced much besides in the yard with his kids, but he’s hoping his pitch might earn him some props with the team.
