Time for Baseball and the Reno Aces!   Leave a comment

By Tim Hauserman

 

Ah May. Time for spring biking, hiking to Emerald Bay, and baseball. For many of us Tahoe folks, baseball means watching our beloved San Francisco Giants. There is nothing quite as fine as making the trek to a Giants game at ATT Park. Until you get the bill for driving to San Francisco, parking, getting tickets a million miles from home plate and buying several overpriced sweatshirts that are always required when you find yourself in San Francisco on a foggy night.

There is a Plan B for the baseball fan who wants to see a game live: The Reno Aces. Triple A Minor League Baseball is just a 35 minute drive from Truckee, in a lovely little ball park tucked in between the downtown skyscrapers, the Truckee River and the railroad tracks. Seeing the Aces is an easy, fun and affordable experience. Parking can be found just a short walk from the park. You don’t need to buy tickets weeks in advance. Just walk up to the ticket window an hour or two before game time and get a great seat at a price that is downright civilized. You can eat inside the park or grab a bite at a few of the places downtown just a block away.

Once you are inside the gates, The Aces stadium is a fine place to spend an evening. You can hang out on the grassy knoll above center field and watch the sunset over downtown, enjoy a libation at one of the field side bars and restaurants, or get in a bit of a workout by walking a few laps around the stadium. And then of course, about every inning they have some sort of wacky promotion or on-the field race to keep you entertained. It’s just a good old fashioned experience.

 

How is the quality of play? While the names may not be familiar, these are good players at the highest level of the Minor Leagues, either working hard to make the majors, or spending time working on mechanics before they go back up to The Show. And The Aces want your business. Just about every night there is some sort of promotion with inexpensive food or after the game fireworks. Check out the schedule at www.renoaces.com

Batter Up!
