Andrew Murphy named voice of Lexington Legends; St. Louis native to serve as media relations director

The Lexington Legends have announced Andrew Murphy will serve as their broadcaster and media relations director for the 2020 Season.

Murphy, a native of St. Louis, is no stranger to the Bluegrass as he has spent the last four years studying business management and communication at the University of Kentucky. He first found a passion for calling games at the Legends’ own Whitaker Bank Ballpark, where he studied under trailblazer Emma Tiedemann in 2018.

“Lexington is my second home, and the Legends have given me so much over the past few years. I can’t express my thanks enough, except to give it my all in the booth and around the community this season,” Murphy said.

In 2019, Murphy called games for the Duluth Huskies of the Northwoods League. In addition to broadcasting, he has served as an athletics media relations assistant at UK for three years.

“We are thrilled to have Andrew join the Lexington Legends for our 20th anniversary season as we go for our third League championship in a row. Andrew’s energy and enthusiasm are a perfect fit with our winning culture on and off the field,” said Andy Shea, President and CEO of the Lexington Legends.

Legends games this season will be available to stream online for free through milb.com and lexingtonlegends.com.

The Legends open the 2020 season with an exhibition game against the Bowling Green Hot Rods on April 7 at 6:50 p.m., then Opening Day is April 9 at 7:05 p.m. facing the Greenville Drive at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.
