Las Vegas 51s Baseball Team: Best in Wholesome Family Entertainment
Las Vegas Triple-A baseball of the Pacific Coast League (PCL) has provided exciting family entertainment to Las Vegas for three decades (1983–2012). Professional baseball debuted in Cashman Field to a crowd of 13,878 fans on April 1, 1983, for an exhibition game between the Seattle Mariners and the San Diego Padres. PCL baseball was born nine days later on April 10 before an inaugural crowd of 10,622.

The Las Vegas franchise established a player-development agreement with the San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball (MLB) for the first 18 years of the team’s existence (1983–2000). The most prominent players from the Padres’ relationship included Roberto Alomar (Hall of Fame inductee in 2011), two-time PCL Most Valuable Player (1988–89) Sandy Alomar Jr., Bruce Bochy, Carlos Baerga, Joey Cora, Ozzie Guillen, John Kruk and Benito Santiago. In 2001, the team’s MLB affiliation changed to the Los Angeles Dodgers, and players like Chad Billingsley, Andre Either, Matt Kemp and James Loney ushered in a new era of athletes that graced Cashman Field before their relocation to the historic field at Dodger Stadium. Then in 2009 the team’s current MLB affiliate signed on with the 51s: the Toronto Blue Jays. It didn’t take long for Las Vegas to see the talent of the Blue Jays’ minor league system. J.P. Arencibia, Kyle Drabek and Brett Lawrie are the latest talented players to add their names to the distinguished list of 51s alums.

In a city dominated by the best that entertainment has to offer, the 51s have carved a niche in providing an affordable and extremely entertaining product for visitors and locals alike. Using the game of baseball as the foundation, the 51s build upon the game experience with giveaway items, postgame firework shows and daily promotions that offer value to the fans.

The individual fans and season ticket holders are only part of the 51s fan base. Many companies look to 51s baseball as a strong team-building or company entertainment option that allows for camaraderie among guests in a fan-friendly and affordable atmosphere.
