Stein, Alan

Lexington, Kentucky

Alan Stein, a Lexington native, has been involved in the sports industry throughout his entire life. He has served as an athlete, coach, and spectator, and his true love has always been baseball. Alan has accomplished much success professionally but is probably most well-known in the sports industry for bringing professional baseball back to Lexington. Alan realized a personal dream of his in 2001 when the Lexington Legends minor league baseball team opened their first season in Applebee’s Park. Alan has served as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Legends for six years and also serves as Chief Operating Officer for Ivy Walls Management Company.

He serves as a member of the Board of Trustees of the National Association Professional Baseball Leagues and was recently inducted into the South Atlantic League Baseball Hall of Fame. Mr. Stein’s love for baseball just recently carried over to the softball diamonds as he and one-time Lexington Legends’ owner, Brad Redmon, donated the space in front of Applebee’s Park where the Kentucky Softball Hall of Fame and Honor will be permanently housed.

Having the Hall of Fame in Central Kentucky is a dream come true for the board members and past and future inductees, especially next to beautiful Applebee’s Park. A million “thanks” would not be enough to show the gratitude towards Mr. Stein for his contribution giving the Hall of Fame the recognition and home it deserves.
