From 'Lexington Legends,' they're now the 'Lexington Counter Clocks.'
“Throughout the process of developing our new team name and visual identity, we heard from hundreds of members of the local community, who all shared one thing in common: a deep pride of their state and of its rich history,” said Lexington Counter Clocks owner Nathan Lyons on the team's official website. “We have worked hard to reflect this hometown pride – and the significant role Central Kentucky has played in sports history – in our new name and visual identity.”
The Lexington Counter Clocks, formerly known as the Lexington Legends, are an American professional baseball team based in Lexington, Kentucky. They are part of the South Division of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, a "partner league" of Major League Baseball. Established in 2001, the team has played its home games at Wild Health Field since its inception.
Originally a Class-A team in the Florida State League, the team moved to Lexington after the 2000 season. Under manager J.J. Cannon, they achieved a successful inaugural season with a 92-48 win-loss record. The team has experienced various milestones, including a notable appearance by legendary pitcher Roger Clemens in 2006.
In 2021, the Lexington Legends joined the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, further expanding their opportunities. The team was sold to Nathan and Keri Lyons in 2022. In 2023, the team underwent a rebranding to the Lexington Counter Clocks, introducing two new mascots, Hoss and Dinger.
