The Las Vegas Ballpark will be operating at 100% capacity for the first time this season tonight for the Aviators game against the Reno Aces.
After allowing only 50% of capacity in the first month of the season, the team announced on Monday that social distancing would no longer be enforced.
Masks will also no longer be needed for those who are fully vaccinated due to CDC and state guidelines.
The game will be the first in a six-game series with Reno as well as the first of a 12-game homestand that ends on June 22.
The Aviators haven’t played in front of a full Las Vegas Ballpark crowd since the stadium’s inaugural season in 2019. The team averaged 9,299 fans per game that year and topped the MiLB in terms of fan participation. .
The 2019 season also saw 47 sold-out sales and nearly double fan attendance from the previous season after the team left Cashman Field and moved to Summerlin.
All-time attendance at the Las Vegas Ballpark is 12,710,596, compared to a total of 12,001,011 in 36 seasons of play at Cashman Field.
The stadium was also just voted the best in AAA baseball for the second time in three years by Ballpark Digest fan vote.
Fans attending this weekend’s games will be treated to a $ 2 beer tonight, a post-game fireworks display on Friday and Aviators automatic blinds on Saturday.
