Asbury Hosts Faith & Family Night in Lexington
A huge success in previous years, Asbury University is once again sponsoring Faith & Family Night — featuring Asbury fellowship, baseball fun, a fireworks show and a free concert by Grammy Award-nominated Christian group Sanctus Real — on July 26 at Whitaker Bank Ballpark in Lexington.
This event traditionally sells out, so be sure to obtain your tickets as soon as possible. Special pricing on tickets for Asbury students, faculty, staff and alumni — currently limited to the first 100 — are available (via information below).
Asburians young and old will be involved in everything from welcoming fans and the ceremonial first pitch to participating in the between-inning activities as the Lexington Legends play the Savannah Sand Gnats. Following the game, Sanctus Real will perform a free concert with fireworks at the ballpark.
The Lexington Legends have been playing in Lexington since 2001 and are a Class A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals. The Legends’ family of mascots, including Big L, his wife, Elle, and their son, Little L, will be on hand during the Faith & Family Night, along with mascot PeeWee the Baseball. Don’t be surprised if Asbury University’s own Isaiah the Eagle flies in for an appearance, as well.
Sanctus Real has been nominated for six GMA Dove Awards and won Modern Rock Album of the Year in 2005. They have also been nominated for two Grammy Awards: Best Rock Gospel Album (2009) and Best Contemporary Pop/Gospel Album (2010).
Gates open at 6 p.m., pre-game activities begin at 6:20 p.m., and the first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. The limited number of discounted tickets are available to Asbury University students, faculty, staff and alumni by contacting the Alumni Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. For other ticket orders (group packages for little league teams, church youth groups, etc., are still available), visit lexingtonlegends.com.
