Las Vegas Ballpark
Las Vegas Ballpark in Las Vegas, NV, is the home of the Las Vegas Aviators, the Oakland Athletics' Triple-A West farm team. Opened in 2019, it was slated to host the 2020 Triple-A Baseball National Championship, but the Coronavirus pandemic killed that along with the entire minor league season. The annual spring-training Big League Weekend, lost in the stadium transition, returned as a four-team, two-weekend event – but the 2021 edition was also lost to the pandemic.
The Howard Hughes Corp. built the stadium for its ball club, spending $150 million after selling naming rights to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority for $80 million. Some seats are mesh-backed against the desert heat, and netting far above the left-field wall protects the NHL's Vegas Golden Knights' neighboring practice rink from home runs.
