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.
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.
