The team and the ball park have been a great addition to the Summerlin community and the Valley as the popularity is growing among fans.

While ticket prices are a little higher at the new stadium than they were at Cashman Field, that didn't stop many from attending.

Experts say 651,000 people came to watch the Aviators this season.

That's nearly double the amount of fans who attended the games at Cashman Field last year, they ended the season with 330,000 in attendance.

Organizers say 45% of fans are from the Summerlin area and 55% are from around the valley.

The new ball park has won the heart of many around the valley and country.

The new park was awarded first place this year for the best MILB Triple-A ball park.
