SLYB Long-Time Service Honorees:

Three individuals who have combined more than 100 years of service to South Lexington Youth Baseball were honored at the Major League closing ceremony last week with the presentation of Lifetime Achievement Awards and additional honors, as announced by SLYB President, Stephen Day.

Two Major League managers and one individual from the administrative side were the honorees.  Besides the Lifetime Achievement Awards, the president announced that three of SLYB Fields at Shillito Park would be named in their honor. Also, the trio was inducted July 11 into the East Kentucky Babe Ruth Baseball Hall of Fame.  

First, Major League White Sox manager Carl Peel was recognized for his 43 years of service to SLYB, starting in the 1970s as a Minor League coach and soon being named the White Sox Major League manager, where he still remains.  

Going forward, what has been called Field #1, will be named Peel Field.

Next, the league honored Cardinals’ Manager Donnie Warner, who began with SLYB in 1979 and besides his numerous Cardinals’ championship teams, Warner was Manager of SLYB All-Star teams in 1992 and 2001 which captured Cal Ripken/Major 60 World Series championships.  

Field #4 now becomes Warner Field.

Fittingly, the White Sox and Cardinals each won their respective divisions in 2013 and reached the finals of the Major League tournament, with the Cardinals victorious in the championship game.

From the administrative side, the league recognized Logan Bailey, whose SLYB service dates to 1975 and includes two terms as President, numerous positions on the Board of Directors, and serving in several other capacities including Coach, along with league consulting and advisory capacities. He also represents SLYB in hosting the Blue Grass State Games.

Field #2 now becomes known as Bailey Field.
