. LAS VEGAS( FOX5) -The Las Vegas 51s baseball group on Monday revealed it will be rebranding and changing its name for the 2019 season. The modifications will accompany the decades-old team’s transfer to the Las Vegas Ballpark at Downtown Summerlin next year. This summertime will mark the 51s’ last season in Cashman Field near downtown. Furthermore, the group will have a new AAA affiliate team, not the New york city Mets, according to a release.
” We are moving to the beautiful brand-new Las Vegas Ballpark at Downtown Summerlin and a brand-new Big league association in 2019,” 51s President and COO Don Logan stated. “Our ownership group, The Howard Hughes Corporation wants the transition to be a home run complete with a new name and brand-new logo design.”
With that, the 51s introduced a “Call the Team” sweepstakes. Through April 30, fans can recommend ideas through the team’s site and social media pages. On May 4, an entry will be arbitrarily decided to win a grand reward consisting of $500 of group merchandise.
Not mentioned particularly in the release was the fate of mascot Cosmo, a big grey alien, however he’ll likely go away with the rebranding.
