Ballpark Visit: Aces Ballpark / 2

We visit Aces Ballpark, the new home of the Reno Aces.Another feature of Aces Ballpark is the use of very distinctive signs for the restrooms. The Men’s restroom entrances are designated by a stylized image of Ted Williams swinging the bat, and the women’s restroom entrances sport an image from “A League of Their Own.” These are a clever touch. Other nice touches around the park: the Aces logo on the end of every aisle, and trash cans with large Aces helmets. And there is the Seventh Inning Stretch, where the very large smiling baseball, looking like Mr. Met or the Great Pumpkin, rises from behind the center-field batter’s eye.

Upstairs past third base, the Hall Of Fame Club serves 150, and includes 88 veranda seats, TVs, and a wet bar. Suites stretch around the upper level, which also houses team offices and the press box. An additional press table is located on the lower concourse behind the seating, behind home plate.

All fans receive a free 60-page Scorecard magazine, which includes greetings from the mayors of Reno and Sparks, bios of the owners, manager (Brett Butler), coaches and staff, plus photos, bios and stats on most of the players (minor league rosters change alot!). Funded by local advertisers, this is a great take-home souvenir that fans can refer to, and will remind them to plan a return visit.
