Triple-A Final Stretch to Benefit Local Charities; Aviators Partner with YMCA of Southern Nevada
(Las Vegas, NV) - Minor League Baseball™ (MiLB™) today announced the creation of a charitable component to the 10-game Triple-A Final Stretch of games (September 23 - October 3) that will benefit 501(c)3 charities in each Triple-A city. Las Vegas Aviators® professional baseball team of Triple-A West, Triple-A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics, announced that YMCA of Southern Nevada will be the local charity to receive the donation!
For each home run hit by Triple-A teams (home and road games) during the Triple-A Final Stretch, Minor League Baseball will donate $50 per home run to a local charity selected by the team. The team hitting the most home runs over the 10-game span will generate an extra $5,000 donation for their charity.
"Minor League Baseball teams have long been great community partners, and we are pleased to make a donation to each of these local charities on behalf of our Triple-A teams for their performance during the Triple-A Final Stretch," said Major League Baseball's Vice President, Minor League Operations and Development, Peter Woodfork. "These charities provide a variety of valuable services to their community, and it is our honor to recognize their efforts."
The Aviators 10-game Triple-A Final Stretch includes: hosting the Oklahoma City Dodgers, Triple-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers, in a five-game series from Thursday-Monday, September 23-27 at Las Vegas Ballpark. Following an off-day on Tuesday, September 28, the Aviators will embark to Northern Nevada for a five-game series against intrastate rival, the Reno Aces, Triple-A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks. The series at Greater Nevada Field will run from Wednesday-Sunday, September 29 - October 3.
