Whitaker Bank Ballpark is a stadium in Lexington, Kentucky. It is primarily used for baseball, and is the home field of the Lexington Legends minor league baseball team. It was built in 2001. It holds 6,994 people. From 2001 until 2010, the stadium was named Applebee's Park. In January 2011, it was announced that the naming rights to the stadium had been bought by Whitaker Bank Corporation, and the stadium was renamed Whitaker Bank Ballpark.FeaturesWhitaker Bank Ballpark is modeled after larger minor-league and major-league stadiums. It features the "Pepsi Party Deck" over the right field wall. This area is available to rent by groups. Along the first base line is the "Budweiser Stables," where fans can order beer and watch a game from an area of picnic tables. Behind home plate and accessible from the stadium's main entrance, the "Kentucky Ale Taproom" restaurant caters to members and guests with passes. The third base line features a small but popular area for families to watch the games. This area includes a kids area with a playground, bouncer and obstacle course. The bleachers, behind left field, holds more fans. There are two videoboards and one manual out-of-town scoreboard. The ballpark contains 785 club seats and 24 luxury suites.The stadium's largest crowd to date came on June 6, 2006, when a standing-room-only crowd of over 9,300 was on hand to witness what the team dubbed "Rocket Relaunch" — Roger Clemens's first stop on his return to the Houston Astros.

  • Single A baseball is such a great value! If you go on a Thursday, it is $1 for Kentucky Ale beer and you can get a ticket for as little as $5. If want to go all out, the best seats in the house are only $25. That's cheaper than some of the least expensive seats at an MLB game. You will have fun!
  • The Lexington Legends games are an affordable way to have fun with the whole family. Tickets and refreshments are reasonably priced and the ballpark is beautiful with lots of ways to enjoy the game. There isn't a bad seat in the house.
  • Great ballpark even though some things have lost the new paint like the seats , wall murals , gates , pictures on wall missing and certain areas (maybe they were ripped off over time)The Kentucky ale lounge seems like it kinda of runs on fumes as it's not really a fun operational restaurant like it was intended to be when it first it opened as Makers Mark Lounge and had sort of prestige about when you actually needed a sticker to go in and use the bar/restaurant and had severs who would come out and take orders and deliver food. The experience its self in the seat are great for kids as there are activities between innings and a play park in left field as well as some other things , unfortunately again there use to be more but things like the merry go round but things have kind of gone over the years. Regardless of things losing there newness over the years the ticket prices have stayed affordable and the food has been upgraded quite a bit to keep things interesting even though on a Friday or Saturday night beware the lines are awful! It is still a great experience to have with the family and keeps me coming back to watch.
  • Handicap parking is only a couple of spaces on each row, at beginning and as far back as rows go. No transport assistance, golf cart or way to assist someone who can't walk far from parking to front gate. I asked someone and they stated no, they have nothing like that. On way out, first thing I saw was a man driving golf cart! Would have been nice to have a ride to the gate and be able to see the first pitch instead of spending that time walking trying to get through the parking lot. Should have handicap closer, and more handicap parking or some sort of van or transportation to assist patrons in this situation.
  • Great place and atmosphere to spend a 4th of July Evening and the Fireworks after the game were GREATTTTTT!!! The seats we had were only $11. They were good seats also!!

Where to stay in Lexington

Downtown Lexington offers accommodations ranging from budget to luxury, but for easier access to the area's famous horse parks and farms, consider staying just north of the city proper. Many rustic bed and breakfasts on the edge of town offer guests a chance to stay at a farmhouse or log cabin. These properties provide not only every comfort of home, but also much more privacy than a downtown hotelĀ could offer. To avoid driving to Lexington's major urban attractions, consider a hotel near the city's convention center.
