The Howard Hughes Corporation will break ground on a new ballpark that will house the Las Vegas 51s in Summerlin next week.
Officials with the minor league baseball team, which is owned by Howard Huges Corp., have said they hope to move from their current home in downtown’s Cashman Field to the new ballpark in time for the 2019 season.
The groundbreaking will be held February 23 with 51s staff, fans and representatives of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.
The Las Vegas Ballpark will be a 10,000-fan capacity stadium located next to City National Arena, where the Golden Knights practice.
The project has cost roughly $150 million, $80 million of which comes from a naming rights deal with the LVCVA.
