Reno's Aces Ballpark Now Greater Nevada Field; Soccer, Too

RENO, Nev. (AP) — The owners of Reno's Triple-A minor league baseball team are changing the name of their downtown stadium from Aces Ballpark to Greater Nevada Field.

Reno Aces president Eric Edelstein announced Thursday that the Carson City-based Greater Nevada Credit Union has purchased the naming rights to the ballpark where the Arizona Diamondbacks' Pacific League affiliate has played since 2009.

Terms of the 15-year agreement were not disclosed.

Edelstein is also the president of the city's future USL soccer team — the Reno 1868 FC. They're also scheduled to begin play next year at the stadium along the Truckee River with 6,500 seats and a capacity of 9,100.
