Wednesday Links: Pellegrini Career Home Run Leader

College Baseball, Major League Baseball, Minor Leagues

Before we get to this morning’s links I’d just like to pass on congratulations to Lexington Legends outfielder Brian Pellegrini for becoming the franchise’s all-time home run leader with 33 long balls.  Pellegrini hit 21 home runs in his first season in Lexington in 2008 and has added 12 home runs since returning to Lexington in 2009 after starting the season with High A Lancaster.  The “Big Pelli” broke the record on June 15 with his first home run in a two-homer game against Asheville.  Tommy Whiteman previously held the record with 28 career home runs.  While working the media relations department for the Legends last summer I found Pellegrini to be a refreshing change from the usual minor leaguer.  Brian embraced Lexington and didn’t just view it as a minor step on the way to millions.

Now for the links:
