Las Vegas Aviators TicketsThe Las Vegas Aviators began their first season in 2019. The team changed its name from the Las Vegas 51s and relocated from Cashman Field near downtown Las Vegas to the Las Vegas Ballpark in Summerlin, Nev., at the end of 2018. Currently the Triple-A minor league affiliate of the Oakland Athletics, the team plays in the Pacific Coast League’s Southern Division. Under its original name, the Las Vegas Stars, this was the last minor league team in Las Vegas to win a PCL championship in 1988 and 1989. The current Aviators went to the semifinals in the PCL Championship round in 2019, and a number of players are looking to make noise in the upcoming season as they fight to return to the championship series. Players for the Aviators include left-handed pitchers Jesús Luzardo and A.J Puk, center field man Sean Murphy, right-hand pitcher Daulton Jefferies and outfielder Austin Beck.
