Las Vegas Ballpark

From BR Bullpen

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.

The ballpark seats 10,000 and replaced Cashman Field, which was the home of previous versions of the Las Vegas Pacific Coast League franchise: the Las Vegas Stars and the Las Vegas 51s.
