Sixteen drop-down batting cages match with the ProBatter PX2 simulator to test players' swings, while coaches, including former professional players, teach hitting, fielding, and pitching skills. The all-season complex is also home to winter baseball and soccer leagues that let players practice their skills without having to face a team of snow wraiths.
To supply the highest quality baseball training through the use of innovative drills, technology, and professional experience while maintaining a tenacious approach in ensuring each student's success on the baseball field and in life.
When the Legends first stepped onto the field at Whitaker Bank Ballpark in 2001, they broke a nearly half-century dry spell of pro baseball in the city of Lexington. That first season, they made their presence known by winning the South Atlantic League championship and trying to rename City Hall after themselves. Since their inauguration in '01, the Legends have sent more than three-dozen players to the majors, fulfilling the promise of their name and creating their own legacy.
