One of my absolute favorite things to do in the summertime in the Reno-Tahoe region is visit the Aces Ballpark and watch an Aces games with my friends. The Reno Aces are a Triple-A Minor League team in the Pacific Coast league. Not only are they a great team, but also they have the most amazing stadium right in downtown Reno – the Aces Ballpark. Rumor has it that other Triple-A teams love to play the Aces just so they can make the trip to Reno since our ballpark is so much better than the rest.
Just last week, my colleagues and friends visited the park to catch a Monday night game and had a blast! We sat in spectacular Bugsy’s Sports Bar and Grill patio section overlooking third base. Not only were the views great, but we also enjoyed full service for food and beverage which you can’t pass up. Its especially perfect for group events and large parties to enjoy. My favorite – the pretzel bites, yum!
The Aces Ballpark has a number of great features in the park located in downtown Reno adjacent to the Truckee River. Some of the highlights include the Circus Circus Kids Zone, Baseball Mountain, the Bugsy’s Sports Bar and Grill as I mentioned above and of course the lively Freight House District where you can catch live concerts, DJs, play a game of corn hole and celebrate after-the-game drinks. Besides all of the special events and concerts hosted at the popular Freight House District, the ballpark also hosts a packed schedule of featured events including: St. Mary’s Firework Fridays, Small Business Nights, Girls Night Out, the Dog Days of Summer where two guests and their dog enjoy tickets for only $25 and many more!
The Reno Aces schedule last through September with weekly games and ticket prices ranging from as low as $7 for standing sections to $34 for prime seats behind home plate. With these prices, this is a family, friend, work outing that you can’t miss. Visit the Ace’s website at www.renoaces.com to learn more about the game and event schedules as well as purchase your tickets!
