Traveling With the Reno Aces Requires Major Logistics

Posted: Updated:

The Reno Aces travel over 20 times a season and there are major logistics getting our minor league team traveling. 

“It's a long drawn out process,” said clubhouse manager, Dustin Hann. He gets the Aces ready for every road trip.

“Go through, do all the laundry for the guys, make sure it gets packed in the right bags.”

Because of the nature of the minor league, managers know some of the moves the major league is going to make before the players do.

“I'm sure while we're gone we'll have four to five moves in the next four days possibly, have already have nameplates made and uniforms ready to go.”

Minor league players have the tough job of living with the unknown. Aces pitcher Zack Godley practically lives out of his suitcase. He has been moved up and down several times in his three years with the Aces and Arizona Diamondbacks.

"You get that opportunity to get to the big leagues and then you turn around and you have to go back and forth,” said Godley.

The team headed down to Sacramento Saturday for their series against the River Cats. After dropping their stuff off at the hotel, the guy’s went over to Raley Field.

There's a little bit of a rivalry between the two teams so fans packed the house. Saturday was also Armed Forces Night.

Many Aces fans make the trip over the hill to Sacramento to see the team. It might be hard for the team to travel, but Aces fans say coming to Sacramento is easy. 

“Very close convenient, it's a great ball park,” said Chris Wood of Reno.

Meg Myles, also from Reno, added, “Easy travel and lots of fun, couple hours drive for us!”

Raley Field is similar to Greater Nevada Field. It is close to downtown Sacramento and along the Sacramento River. 

The Aces lost on Saturday night but won Sunday. They play again Monday and Tuesday at Raley Field and return to Reno Thursday for a series against the New Orleans Baby Cakes.
