Fourth Year in Reno Aces, Attendance Still Strong

Posted: Updated:

The Reno Aces are more than halfway through their fourth season in Reno and the team said they are still seeing good attendance numbers.

"People want to go and see a competition between a couple teams that are very competitive. They have really gotten it this year. The fans have been excited about it," said Reno Aces General Manager Rick Parr.

Parr said there's a couple of teams fans always come out to see, like the  Las Vegas 51s and their rival Sacramento Rivercats.

There will be plenty of fans Monday's game against those much maligned Rivercats, but some professional athletes will be taking in the action as well.

Before the game, some professional golf players were at the partaking batting practice. Three time major winner, Padriag Harrington and two time U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen.

Along with celebrities and great baseball, Monday is Channel 2 News' Om Nom Nom Night, which means $1 hot dogs. 

"People are always looking for a bargain, especially nowadays with the economy the way it is. So we said, listen, let's fill up their tummies with hot dogs. I love hot dogs," said Parr.
