LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — The Lexington Legends have teamed up with the Bowling Green Hot Rods and the Louisville Bats to announce the Team Kentucky campaign to benefit non-profits in each of the three cities.
The three teams have come together to create a t-shirt showing unity of the teams and the state. The shirt features all three team's logos across a silhouette of Kentucky. The words "We are Team Kentucky" surround the silhouette.
Shirts are available for preorder by clicking here. The shirts will cost $15 on the Legends' website and $5 of each shirt sold will be donated to the Coronavirus Response Fund.
The Coronavirus Response Fund is organized by the United Way of the Bluegrass and the Blue Grass Community Foundation.
“We are proud to be a part of the Commonwealth of Kentucky” says Legends President and CEO Andy Shea “Joining together with the Hot Rods and the Bats on this project allows us to help our individual communities, while still coming together as one great state.”
The proceeds from the selling of shirts in Louisville will be donated to the Louisville COVID-19 Relief Fund, while Bowling Green will be donating a portion of their proceeds to HOTEL Inc.
Production of the shirts will begin on May 15.
