The Reno Aces opened on Tuesday and with the new season, come some changes to Greater Nevada Field. Kids made themselves at home at Greater Nevada Field for the Reno Aces' first home game.
A pitching inflatable is just one of the additions to the park.
“The inflatable makes it better because you can experience pitching in a different way,” said Aces fan Jason Furumoto.
“Our kid’s zone out in center field is completely revamped. All new games and rides. And a 35-foot-tall Archie you can bounce around in,” said Reno Aces Baseball President Eric Edelstein.
The team says it's spent more than $5 million over the last five years on improvements for the kids and adults. “For the first time ever, Reno Aces will have their own beer,” said Edelstein.
The food concessions also have undergone some changes.
“Our Evans Street entrance when you come in, it is going to have rotating theme food throughout the entire year. So it's going to always be something different,” said Edelstein. The sandwich called the triple play is making an appearance. “That sandwich is a hamburger and pulled pork inside a grilled cheese,” said Edelstein.
New registers have been added to shorten wait times on getting food along with do-it-yourself technology.
“We are the first minor league stadium in America that has self-serve kiosk,” said Edelstein. “We noticed a huge difference on opening day. Sometimes there are jitters in the food department. We experienced nothing like that tonight. We had an amazing meal,” said Aces fan Laura Furumoto.
