The Lexington Legends announced today that it has hired Justin Ferrarella as the club’s new President and General Manager. Originally from Wayne, New Jersey, Ferrarella has served as General Manager for the Frontier League’s Sussex County Miners since 2017. He will start in his new role with the Legends on January 5th.
“Lexington is an incredible sports town, and I’m thrilled to be joining the city’s baseball club and the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball,” said Ferrarella. “I see tremendous opportunity for the Legends – both on and off the field – and I’m looking forward to kicking off a new era of baseball in Lexington this season.”
Ferrarella began with the Sussex County Miners as Operations Manager, during the team’s first year. In 2017, he was named General Manager and led the team to on-field success with a win in the 2018 Can-Am League Championship. During his time as General Manager, Ferrarella was also responsible for seeing the Miners’ transition to the Frontier League.
“Justin has been greatly successful with the Miners, and we’re excited for him to be bringing his impressive baseball experience to Kentucky,” said Legends owner Nathan Lyons. “We wanted to find a General Manager who could help baseball in Lexington truly grow and succeed, and Justin’s experience with the Miners demonstrates his ability to do just that.”
