About the Ticket Supplier: Las Vegas 51s Baseball
Las Vegas Triple-A baseball, of the Pacific Coast League, has provided exciting family entertainment to the city for over three decades (1983-2013). Initiating professional baseball in Cashman Field, a crowd of 13,878 fans jammed the stadium on April 1, 1983, for a Major League exhibition game between the Seattle Mariners and the San Diego Padres. PCL baseball was born in Las Vegas on April 10, 1983, before a crowd of 10,622. The then-Stars, in their brown, gold and burnt orange uniforms, defeated Salt Lake City, 11-8. Las Vegas, under manager Harry Dunlop, posted a regular season 83-60 record, the team’s best mark which stood for 19 seasons until the 2002 51s broke the all-time record of 85-59 (.590). Outfielder Kevin McReynolds, the 1983 PCL MVP, set the tone for the caliber of players, which would appear yearly in the talent laden PCL. Manager Larry Bowa guided the Stars to their first PCL crown in 1986 with an 80-62 record and Steve Smith led Las Vegas to its second PCL title in 1988. The 1983 Stars team were inducted into the Southern Nevada Sports Hall of Fame on June 8, 2007.
