A real-life field of dreams, Las Vegas Ballpark® in Downtown Summerlin®, home of the Las Vegas Aviators® of the Pacific Coast League, is a home run— not just for the Summerlin® community but for the entire Las Vegas Valley. Home of the city’s professional baseball team that is one of the Minor League Baseball (MiLB) leaders in game attendance, the Las Vegas Ballpark provides one of the city’s best professional sports values and opportunities to escape mid-day heat with evening games, affordable ticket prices, and an impressive food and beverage offering at every price point.
According to Danielle Bisterfeldt, SVP, Marketing and Consumer Experience for Summerlin, Las Vegas Ballpark tops the sales chart for concessions according to Professional Sports Catering (PSC/Levy), the nation’s leader in food and beverage operations for MiLB and MLB ballparks across the country.
“The numbers are proof positive of the popularity of Las Vegas Ballpark and Las Vegas Aviators,” said Bisterfeldt. “Summerlin and valley residents flock to the stadium night after night, all summer long, to enjoy America’s favorite pastime in one of the country’s most beautiful and award-winning ballparks. It’s the perfect place to chill out and cool off while watching the action heat up on the field. For added fun, fireworks punctuate the post-game sky on select game nights, adding to the summertime fun.”
In its first season in 2019, the Ballpark was named “Best New Ballpark of the Year by Ballpark Digest, the industry standard for the business of baseball; it was also named “Best New Ballpark” by Baseballparks.com. During its second season in 2021, Las Vegas Ballpark was voted by fans as the MiLB Triple-A Best of the Ballpark. And in 2022, the Ballpark is continuing its successful trajectory and is one of the leaders in game attendance amongst all MiLB teams.
According to Peter Riley, Senior Vice President, Secretary and General Counsel for The Howard Hughes Corporation, who oversees Las Vegas Ballpark and the Las Vegas Aviators, the corporation made significant investment in Las Vegas Ballpark in recognition of the fact that sports are the ultimate convener. “Our goal was to ensure Las Vegas Ballpark was designed and built as a best-in-class venue to deliver unique, memorable and affordable experiences for fans.”

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, making Las Vegas Ballpark one of only two professional sports venues valley-wide to offer free parking. Ticket prices start at $13, making it a great value for families seeking a professional sports event at an affordable price.
