LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 29, 2010) − UK
HealthCare is teaming up with the Lexington Legends for the third year
to provide baby changing stations at Applebee's Park for the 2010
baseball season. The UK HealthCare-Lexington Legends matchup also
includes a promotion known as "Lexington's Little Legend." This year's
participant is Hudson Dean Evans, born at UK Chandler Hospital on the
Legends' opening day, April 16.
Baby Hudson came into the world weighing 8-pounds, 6-ounces and was
20 1/4 inches long. Hudson and his parents, Dean and Whitney Evans of
Lexington, will be formally introduced in person at an upcoming game at
which time they will be presented with gifts from the Legends
organization which will include a lifetime membership to the Jiff Kid's
Club. The Legends will also feature pictures of Hudson on their
JumboTron as he grows throughout the season.
"The UK Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology's Little Legend
promotion is a perfect example of the creativity and community support
we provide with our partners," said Andy Shea, general manager for the
Legends organization. "It will be fun watching Hudson grow up through
this partnership. This has truly turned into a very fun and innovative
way to connect UK HealthCare, the Legends and our fans."
The UK OB/GYN department's partnership with the Lexington Legends is
part of an effort to get the message out about the services the
UK HealthCare offers women's health services for obstetrics and
gynecology, infertility, high-risk obstetrics and cancers of the
reproductive tract at a single location on the Good Samaritan campus.
