LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — April 9 was supposed to be the beginning of the Lexington Legends 20th season.

It was set to be a year of celebrations too, with the Legends coming off back-to-back South Atlantic League championships.

However, instead of rounding third and heading towards the season, the staff isn't even allowed in the ballpark.

"This is the longest I've been away from the stadium since I got married, actually," said Legends President and CEO Andy Shea.

Shea knows that when baseball and those warm summer nights at a crowded ballpark do return, it will mean much more than just the game.

"It's all about the community and having a common interest. Being together with people you know and love," said Shea.

Unfortunately, that is the exact opposite of what is happening around us right now, so when the time comes to play ball, Shea says it's going to be a heck of a party.

"We've got a lot of things in the work and just want it to be a huge, huge community celebration."
