The Las Vegas Ballpark has set its sights on pleasing fans from the moment they step into the $150 million, 10,000 seat stadium. State-of-the-art fan amenities will include more concession stands and bathrooms on the concourse level, as well as luxury suites (something Cashman Field never had). There will even be an option for fans to enjoy a dip in the pool while watching the ball game, as spectators will be able to privately rent out the swimming pool for $2,000 a game. But the best feature fans can anticipate (regardless of where they are sitting) will be the 4Topps AirFlow mesh seats that will keep fans 30-50 degrees cooler on a hot Las Vegas summer evening.
