Dodgers @ Vegas

DODGERS TO PLAY SPRING TRAINING GAME AT CASHMAN FIELD IN LAS VEGAS

Club will return to the site of their former affiliate for the first time in four years

LOS ANGELES – The Dodgers announced today that the club will play a Spring Training game against the Cincinnati Reds at Cashman Field in Las Vegas on March 31 as part of their 32-game exhibition schedule. Concurrently, the club announced a partnership with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority that will include in-stadium signage as well as several trips to Las Vegas for lucky Dodger fans.

The exhibition game will begin at 7:05 p.m. and marks the return of the Dodgers to Las Vegas for the first time since they played the Seattle Mariners at Cashman Field on March 30, 2006. Prior to that contest, the Dodgers played a Spring Training game annually at Cashman Field from 2001-03, the first three seasons that the Las Vegas 51s were Los Angeles’ Triple-A affiliate. Las Vegas was the club’s Triple-A affiliate from 2001-08.

The game on March 31 will feature a split-squad of Dodgers playing a night contest in Las Vegas, while the rest of the team will take on the San Francisco Giants at Camelback Ranch – Glendale in an afternoon Cactus League contest. On April 1, the Dodgers’ full squad will be back in Los Angeles for a 7:10 p.m. exhibition game at Dodger Stadium against the Cleveland Indians.

Ticket information for the Las Vegas game will be forthcoming, while tickets for all other Dodger Spring Training games can be purchased at dodgers.com/spring.
