The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) and the Las Vegas 51s professional baseball team of the Pacific Coast League (PCL), Triple-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays, announced today that the Cincinnati Reds will face the Los Angeles Dodgers in a Major League Baseball exhibition game on Wednesday, March 31 at 7:05 p.m. at Cashman Field. The game will feature split-squads for both teams.
The “on sale” date for Reds/Dodgers individual game tickets will be announced at a later date.
The Las Vegas 51s were the top farm club of the Dodgers for eight seasons (2001-08). The Reds will be making their inaugural Las Vegas visit.
“Las Vegas is a great backdrop for the L.A. Dodgers and Cincinnati Reds to play an exhibition game,” said Rossi Ralenkotter, President/CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. “Both teams have a rich history and will appeal to baseball fans who love the game and all that it represents.”
“We are excited to announce a third game to our Big League lineup in March,” 51s President/General Manager Don Logan said. “This adds a nice variety of teams that our fans will get to see play this March at Cashman Field (Cubs, White Sox, Dodgers, Reds). The Dodgers have a tremendous following in Southern Nevada and many of the players on the current big league roster played for the 51s before excelling on the Major League level. The Reds have a great baseball tradition and we welcome them for their first visit to Las Vegas.”
