The Lexington Legends and the Florence Y’Alls season is in full swing! The Battle of the Bourbon Trail is a newly formed venture that took the field this summer.
The Battle of the Bourbon Trail came about from both the Frontier League and Minor League Baseball canceling their 2020 seasons. Both cities have formed two teams that play in front of fans every Wednesday through Sunday for a seven week run.
“We are thrilled for this new partnership and venture,” said Legends President and CEO Andy Shea. “We know that baseball at Whitaker Bank Ballpark has been greatly missed and partnering with David DelBello and the Florence Y’alls will bring that energy back to the ballpark.”
Each organization fields two high-caliber teams. Florence hosts the Y’alls and the return of the Freedom. Lexington hosts the Legends and their second identity, Las Leyendas.
“This is our chance to bring baseball back to the Tri-State,” said Y’alls President and CEO David DelBello. “We have been waiting for this chance and can’t wait to welcome fans into our stadium at the end of July.”
These teams are serving as a platform for players looking to start or continue their baseball careers with no other outlets. The four teams will consist primarily of former Major League players, former and current Minor League players and Independent League players.
