Former University of Kentucky player Tristan Pompey contributed an RBI single, a run and a sacrifice bunt in his second day on the job for the Greensboro Grasshoppers, helping his team rally to defeat Lexington Sunday.
Former University of Kentucky baseball star Tristan Pompey tweeted on Friday that he'll be joining the Miami Marlins' Single-A affiliate Greensboro Grasshoppers for their game against the Lexington Legends on Saturday.
The Lexington Legends' coaches and staff say that 19-year-old Seuly Matias has the potential to be an MLB All-Star. Matias leads all of minor league baseball in home runs and was recently named to the South Atlantic League All-Star team.
Emma Tiedemann this season will become the play-by-play voice of the Lexington Legends, making her only the second woman to hold such a position in all of affiliated minor league baseball and the first for the Legends and the South Atlantic League.
