      Watching baseball and reading a good book.

      Children at the Lexington Legends game had the chance to do both at the same time Saturday.

      Organizers of the "Once Upon a Story" book drive collected more than three thousand books to hand out at Whitaker Bank Ballpark today.    

     They transformed a Pods containers into mini-libraries  and let children pick out a book of their liking.

     Organizers say last year they collected two thousand books and are happy to have surpassed that number this year.
