APPLEBEE’S PARK (Lexington, KY.) – On Tuesday afternoon, Lexington Legends President Alan Stein guaranteed Legends fans that Lexington would win on opening night. If they don’t? Stein vowed to cut and dye his hair into a pink Mohawk.
“I’m confident that the Legends will win but… I’m willing to do anything I can to help them get a victory on Thursday night,” Stein said.
Winning on opening night hasn’t been easy for the Legends in the past. In fact, Lexington is just 1-5 on opening days causing Stein to make good on several odd and outrageous bets.
“I’ve eaten cat food and sat in my seat for three days but shaving my head was probably the most memorable stunt,” Stein said. “The Mohawk made sense, especially since we are giving away free hair cuts this year thanks to Suburban Barber Shop,” Stein added.
There could be one winner even if the Legends lose on Thursday night. Stein will keep the pink Mohawk until the Legends get a victory or until the Lexington Legends Charitable Giving Foundation raises $5,000 to be donated to the Susan G. Koman foundation.
The Legends will open the 2007 season at Applebee’s Park on Thursday, April 5, against the Delmarva Shorebirds. Season ticket and mini plan packages are still available. Call the box office for information at 859-422-RUNS (7867).
