Having been a rabid baseball fan from the early days of Dunston-to-Sandberg-to-Grace, I find myself following a number of teams which, as a rule, are natural rivals. I don't care how that seems. I LOVE this game.

Picking up on the Royals since they are joining the Sally now, and they have a righteous farm system. Big days a-comin' for KC, and I'm glad we'll get to see some of that talent for a short time here in KY.

But for argument's sake, I HATE the Yankees.

Today, we get to know a bit about 2012 23rd round pick Travis Ballew, who seemingly floated through his first year in pro ball with Tri-City. We talk about the differences between pro and amateur ball, a typical day at the park, and Darth Vader. Yep.

Lexington First-Hand: The Legends Infield

Lexington First-Hand, September 3rd, 2012
