Reno’s A Buzz with AceBall

Reno’s A Buzz with AceBall

As a native Nevadan I’ve seen a lot of changes in northern Nevada and I’ve heard lots of talk about things that were coming or going to happen that never did.  But hey, that happens everywhere.  But today is a new day and today I’m feeling jazzed for something that I was excited about but never thought I would be THIS excited about – Reno Ace’s baseball.

Downtown Reno is buzzing, really buzzing with excitement.  I captured these photos while coming back from a meeting this afternoon (one day before the first game) and saw the businesses around the stadium preparing to greet the baseball fans.  Signs are being hung, windows polished, specials posted and even a side of a building is painted. It’s an infectious excitement!

And that’s what the Reno Ace’s was supposed to do. We’ve worked with clients in travel and tourism for many years and during that time we’ve been privileged to work on the opening of the Truckee River Whitewater Park in downtown Reno as well as several other national events. I can honestly say that I’ve never seen this kind of support and it’s about time. 

Today, the fence is down around the $50 million stadium and it’s bringing with it a true “build it and they will come” mentality. 

The home opener is tomorrow and I know that those lucky folks attending the game are in for a real treat. 

Go Ace’s…looking forward to seeing you on the field!

    The stadium is awesome. It’s a real, legitimate baseball park and it’s smack in the middle of downtown. I don’t think Reno could have done better with this, and I can’t wait until baseball is a fixture in downtown this summer.

    I love the view looking east from second and virginia. The ballpark looms in the background. Just plain awesome.
