Reno Aces Stadium

Reno Aces Stadium

Evans Avenue, Reno, NV, United States. The Reno Aces are the Triple-A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks and have played in Reno since 2009 when they moved from Tucson. Aces Ballpark opened the same year and has the look of a new, state of the art ballpark.Aces Ballpark is part of a larger redevelopment project called the Freight House District. Construction on the new redevelopment has slowed but has opened a few restaurants over the years and is great place to hang prior to games.Since the ballpark is only a few years old there isn't much in the way of historical context here. The ballpark, the Aces and the city of Reno will host the 2013 Triple-A All-Star Game.Aces Ballpark provides a variety of gourmet hot dogs as well as burgers, fries and popcorn. These are available at the four main food stands.The dozen or so food/beverage carts are where you can find the specialty items. These options include Italian sausage with peppers, pulled pork sandwiches, veggie burgers, smoked brisket sandwiches and spicy carnitas tacos, amongst other selections.For dessert you can get root beer floats, ice cream sundaes, cotton candy and cookies. The also have local favorites Tahoe Creamery pints available.Quench your desert thirst with sodas, bottled water, energy drinks and Snapple. They offer the typical domestic drafts as well as imports like Heineken and craft selections in the Berm Bar. One of the local favorites is Great Basin Brewing Company.One of my favorite places to sit is the grass berm in right field. However, it is tough to sit there until after about 8 pm at night. For day games it is too hot and for evening games the intense sun is in your eyes. After 8 pm, it's awesome and very close to the Berm Bar.The Aces' dugout is on the third base side and this is the first seating section to get the shade, something to consider for early evening games. The first base side gives the best view of the video board located in left-centerfield.Alternate seating options include the 120 skyboxes, the Coors Light Party Zone (left field corner), and the Bullpen Deck (right-centerfield).Also of note is the kids zone sponsored by local casino and arcade center Circus Circus. It is located beyond the grass berm near the fence separating the ballpark from the beautiful Truckee River.Granted, Reno will never be Las Vegas, but it does have a lot to offer and its downtown is a 5 minute walk from Aces Ballpark. Whether gambling, shows, or restaurants are your thing, you can find them just a mile away near the hotels. The one issue is that it seems that for every bustling block there is an equally vacant one the next street over. You can certainly find plenty of fun things to do in the casino district but you also definitely notice the not-so-nice parts of town.The immediate neighborhood (the exterior of the ballpark) is great with the constantly growing Freight House District. This area includes restaurants such as 250 Lounge, Duffy's Ale House and Bugsy's Sports Bar & Grill. Arroyo's Mexican Grill is attached to the ballpark near the entrance and the large baseball structure hanging above.Popular hotels/casinos within walking distance are the Silver Legacy and the El Dorado. Perhaps the best hotel in town is the Peppermill, about 3 miles away from the ballpark. www.stadiumjourney.com Short edit of our Local Baseball Stadium
