With the installment of the sods, the new home of the Las Vegas Aviators starts to look like a real ballpark. A good looking one indeed.
The new grass was laid on Thursday, a few weeks before the new Pacific Coast League season will start. With seats installed in most of the sections of the ballpark, things start to look great. In the current state, one has a good idea how the ballpark will look like when it is finished.
Las Vegas Ballpark, located in Summerlin, has a unique design. First of all the curved roof behind home plate is one of a kind. Also, the luxury suites look good from the outside, not like the boring uniformity of many minor league ballparks.
The ballpark has a scoop in the baseball world. Because of the heat in the Nevada Desert, the seats in the ballpark are all made of breathable mesh.
I must admit I had my doubts if the ballpark would be ready in time but since they construction crews have worked 24/7 the deadline of April 9, Opening Day on which the Aviators will play the Sacramento RiverCats, will be met easily.
