Watch This Field Transformation
Watch Greater Nevada Field transform as crews convert the field overnight between the Reno 1868 FC soccer and the Reno Aces baseball games on July 3rd and 4th.
Channel 2 is presenting the largest firework show in Northern Nevada at Greater Nevada Field after the Reno Aces game on Tuesday night. But before they can even play, they had to turn a soccer field into a baseball field - overnight.
The Reno 1868 FC soccer game ended Monday night around 8:30 and then crews immediately got to work. They have to remove the lines and posts of the soccer field, but also the grass used to cover up the dirt of the baseball diamond.
They worked all night - into the early morning hours. And Greater Nevada Field went from pitch to diamond before the sun came up!
The game tonight starts at 6:30, and our very own Mike Alger is singing the National Anthem.
Fireworks start right after the game.
