With summer just around the corner, the season is getting an early start at Las Vegas Ballpark®, a real-life field of dreams and home of the Las Vegas Aviators®, a professional baseball team of the Pacific Coast League and Triple-A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics. In what is expected to be a celebrated home opener, the Aviators take on the Oklahoma City Dodgers on April 4 for a six-game homestand, marking the opening of the 2023 baseball season!
Located in the heart of Downtown Summerlin®, the community’s dynamic urban core, Las Vegas Ballpark is one of two professional sports facilities that add fun and vibrancy to this popular shopping, dining, entertainment and sports destination. With suites, club seats, berm seating, party zones and decks, picnic tables, kids’ zone, bars and pool beyond the outfield wall, Las Vegas Ballpark boasts a festival-like atmosphere for the whole family.
A home run— not just for the Summerlin® community, but for residents throughout the Las Vegas Valley – Las Vegas Ballpark provides one of the city’s best professional sports values with affordable ticket prices, free parking, family-friendly entertainment, and an impressive food and beverage offering at every price point, according to Danielle Bisterfeldt, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Consumer Experience for Summerlin.
Bisterfeldt also notes that recent upgrades to the Summerlin mobile app make it even easier to buy tickets to Las Vegas Aviators games and plan visits to Las Vegas Ballpark with information on menus, special game night promotions and more. The app, available for download on iPhone and Android devices, serves as a one-stop shop for users to learn about special events and offerings at both Downtown Summerlin and Las Vegas Ballpark.
“Baseball is as much about the overall experience as the game itself, and Las Vegas Ballpark does not disappoint,” Bisterfeldt said. “Las Vegas Ballpark is a Minor League ballpark that offers Major League fun, views, and food and drinks – all in the beautiful setting of Downtown Summerlin.”
In its first season in 2019, and again in 2021 and 2022, The Ballpark won the fan vote for “MiLB Triple-A Best of the Ballparks” awarded by Ballpark Digest, the industry standard for the business of baseball. Las Vegas Ballpark was also named “Ballpark of the Year by baseballparks.com in 2019.

Las Vegas Ballpark’s special 4Topps seats made of breathable mesh allow for air circulation keeping fans cool all summer long. Fans also enjoy dynamic content presented on a one-of-a-kind LED Daktronics video display – the largest Daktronics has installed in the minor leagues and is top 25 in size for baseball stadiums across North America.
In keeping with the traditions of baseball, ticket prices are relatively low to ensure accessibility for families, and abundant, nearby parking continues to be free. Ticket prices start at $13, making it a great value for families seeking a professional sports event at an affordable price.
