History was made Friday night at Las Vegas Ballpark. But not in a good way.
The four-year-old facility, home to the Triple-A Las Vegas Aviators baseball team, saw its first rainout as a vicious monsoonal storm pounded the Summerlin area.
The Aviators game against the Salt Lake Bees, scheduled for a 7 p.m. start, was postponed because of “inclement weather and field conditions,” the team said on X.
The game will be made up Saturday as part of a day-night doubleheader, with a 4:05 p.m. start. Gates open for fans at 2:30 p.m.
The team said the “pickleball paddle giveaway” will happen at 2:30 p,m. The box office will open at noon.
Chuck Johnson, general manager of the Aviators, said on X that Friday’s event was the “1st rain out in Las Vegas Ballpark history.”
