A New Name And A New Stadium For Las Vegas Baseball

A New Name And A New Stadium For Las Vegas Baseball

The Howard Hughes Corporation®, owner of the Las Vegas 51s®, the city's professional Triple-A baseball team of the Pacific Coast League (PCL), and developer of the new Las Vegas Ballpark currently under construction next to Downtown Summerlin®, has officially announced that the team's new name will be the Las Vegas Aviators®

The name change comes on the heels of the team's September announcement of its new two-year Player Development Contract (PDC) with the Oakland A's and in advance of the spring 2019 completion of the Las Vegas Ballpark. The new, state-of-the-art Triple-A baseball stadium will serve as home of the newly named Las Vegas Aviators with the home, season and stadium opener scheduled for April 9, 2019.  Newly branded merchandise and apparel available for purchase at the Las Vegas Ballpark Sales Center at Downtown Summerlin, as well as online at AviatorsLV.com

Howard R. Hughes, Jr., one of the twentieth century's most successful businessmen whose passion for aviation and legacy of innovation includes significant aviation-related firsts and accomplishments. In the H-1 Racer, a plane he designed and built, Hughes set the land speed record in 1935. Hughes went on to set other records, including the fastest coast-to-coast flight in 1937 and the fastest circumnavigation of the globe in 1938, then acquiring and successfully operating major airlines and aviation companies. Las Vegas, where his legacy has helped shape the community for decades, made the decision to name the team in his honor an easy one. The Las Vegas Aviators is the perfect name for the city's oldest professional sports team, one that is now launching a new chapter with a state-of-the-art stadium in Summerlin and a new major league affiliation.

The Las Vegas Aviators have the proud distinction of being the longest enduring franchise in the history of professional sports in the state of Nevada. The 2019 season will mark the 37th season in the Silver State as a proud member of the Pacific Coast League and the inaugural season in the new Las Vegas Ballpark (10,000 seats). The Stars (1983-2000)/51s (2001-18) have reached the 300,000 mark in "home" attendance in all 36 seasons previously at Cashman Field. The Aviators are also in their first season as the Triple-A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics and the franchise won the PCL championship in 1986 and 1988."
