Big League Weekend At Las Vegas Ball Park
Baseball in Las Vegas is coming back in 2022. The minor league affiliate of the Oakland Athletics, “The Las Vegas Aviators,” are proud to open Las Vegas Ballpark on Saturday, March 12, and Sunday, March 13, 2022 for the return of “Big League Weekend.”
This year’s edition will once again welcome the Oakland Athletics as they take on the Cleveland Guardians for the first time in two years.

Baseball fans from everywhere have been waiting to return to Las Vegas for two years now. While they’ve still had the opportunity to watch the Aviators play, the excitement of professional baseball being held in Vegas is a real treat.
