The Las Vegas Aviators’ new home is one step closer to being ready for the April 9 home opener. The Las Vegas Ballpark crew is just about done laying down the Bandera Bermuda grass that will host the former Las Vegas 51’s.
Aviators’ President Don Logan says this ballpark has been a long time coming. He feels Las Vegas has and will always be a baseball town and now loyal fans will have the state-of-the-art facility they deserve.
The Aviators’ home opener will be on Tuesday, April 9 vs. Sacramento River Cats, the Triple-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants.
