About Last Night: Reno Aces, August 8, 2016
This season, when I’m on the road, I’ll write a quick blog post about each Minor League ballpark that I visit. Then, when I return home, I’ll provide the multifaceted blog coverage that you have come to know and perhaps even love. On Monday night I visited Reno, Nevada, the seventh stop on my sprawling 10-team California-Nevada-Idaho-Washington road trip.
August 8: Reno Aces (Triple-A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks)
Opponent: Salt Lake Bees, 7:05 p.m.
Greater Nevada Field, from the outside:
Greater Nevada Field, from within:
Culinary Creation: Funnel cake, red velvet funnel cake and a deep-fried Snickers bar lurking in the back.
Ballpark Character: Princess, a 10-year-old pit bull rescue dog, has become a ballpark celebrity. She shares an office with her owner, Aces executive vice president Andrew Daugherty.
At Random: Aces shortstop Jack Reinheimer made a cameo as designated eater, becoming the first-ever active player to act in this capacity. A truly historic moment.
