Aces to Host 4 Millionth Fan at Greater Nevada Field Sunday, May 19
Reno, NV. - The Reno Aces are approaching their four millionth fan at Greater Nevada Field since the stadium first opened its gates on April 17, 2009. Since that day, the Aces have drawn 3,992,435 making the 7,565th fan through the gates the 4 millionth fan. Reno has surpassed 340,000 fans in each season, including a franchise record 466,606 in their inaugural year (2009).
"It's been proven over time that the Biggest Little City has some of the most passionate fans in all of Minor League Baseball. This month, we surpass four million in attendance since this beautiful ballpark opened back in 2009," stated Aces General Manager Emily Jaenson. "It's our mission to provide affordable, family fun and grow deep roots in this community. We look forward to many more successful years bringing professional baseball to Downtown Reno."
The four millionth fan will be greeted by the Aces front office staff and presented with 2019 Season Tickets and the opportunity to throw out the ceremonial first pitch that night.
Greater Nevada Field, opened in 2009, is on the north bank of the Truckee River and is home to the Reno Aces, Reno 1868 FC, and multiple special events each year. On April 17, 2009, the Reno Aces played their first home game in Aces Stadium, to an over-capacity crowd of 9,167. Greater Nevada Field hosted the 2013 Triple-A All-Star Game in front of a sellout crowd of 10,135. The stadium has 6,500 fixed individual stadium seats, a berm beyond right field, and has standing room surrounding the entire field. Additionally, Greater Nevada field has two party zones with picnic table seating, 20 luxury skyboxes, a 150-person club suite, and the Dugout Club located immediately behind homeplate.
The Aces have committed to improving the ballpark year-over-year, providing capital improvements since 2009. In 2017, Greater Nevada Field installed a new HD video board that measures 37 feet by 45.5 feet and a LED ribbon board display that runs over 200 feet along the left-field wall. This season, the Aces committed about a million dollars worth of improvements, including self-serve kiosks and a 35-foot inflatable Archie bounce house.
"Over the past decade, we've relished the opportunity to be the biggest little Triple-A team in America," said Aces and 1868 FC president Eric Edelstein. "We share this occasion with the 3,999,999 fans who have come before and the next 4,000,000 to join us in the future."
The Aces will face the visiting Tacoma Rainiers three more times this homestand and strap up their boots for Country Fest tonight. 2019 Aces ticket packages still available at www.renoaces.com or by calling (775) 334-4700.
