Vegas Aviators Stadium Wins AAA Best of Ballpark Award
BrightView Sports Turf has done it again. For the second time in three years, the Las Vegas Aviators, AAA affiliate of the Oakland A’s, was voted the winner of the BaseballParks.com’s Ballpark of the Year award.
BrightView has been serving the Las Vegas Pacific Coast League team, formerly known as the 51s, for several years, when approached to construct and manage the new field.
This award-winning field was designed, constructed, and is maintained by BrightView. The state-of-the-art stadium was unveiled April 9, 2019 for the team’s home opener. Although coronavirus forced the cancellation of in-person attendance at Allegiant Stadium, the crowds have been eager to start filling the seats in the new season.
“We were involved quite a bit in the planning of this impressive ballfield,” said Murray Cook, President of BrightView Sports Turf. “We had our hands in the design, field construction, and we proudly continue to provide maintenance to this award winning field.”
The Aviators often see crowd sizes that rival pro teams. Attendance at the stadium captured the strongest attendance in the minor leagues during their 2019 season.
More than 300,000 votes were cast for 30 eligible ballparks. The stadium was also honored with the annual Ballpark Digest Best of the Ballparks fan vote for Triple-A facilities.
“When Las Vegas Ballpark opened in 2019, it instantly set a standard for excellence in all of baseball,” said Ballpark Digest publisher Kevin Reichard. “The Triple-A competition is easily the most competitive bracket among all the MLB Best of the Ballparks votes, and the fans turned out in droves to select the home of the Las Vegas Aviators as their favorite. At a time when we’re finally heading back to normalcy after a terrible 2020, the huge number of readers participating in our fan votes is great news for everyone.”
