“We are excited to have two Big League Weekends in 2022, after a year’s absence due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” Aviators President/COO Don Logan said. “We welcome back the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies from the National League West for a two-game series. Las Vegas Ballpark will once again provide an outstanding atmosphere and environment for Major League Baseball. Fans, both locals and tourists that visit during this event, will have a memorable time.”
“We are grateful to be considered by Major League Baseball to represent the league during this series, as we have with past trips to other great destinations like Australia and Mexico,” Diamondbacks President & CEO Derrick Hall said. “We have a tremendous following in Las Vegas due to our close proximity and we look forward to our local passionate D-backs fans having the opportunity to travel and be in attendance as well.”
“We’re looking forward to bringing Rockies baseball to Las Vegas and to a fanbase that may not normally have the chance to see our club in person,” Rockies President / COO Greg Feasel said. “It’s a fantastic opportunity to come back to Las Vegas to showcase Major League Baseball, and we are excited that the Rockies have the opportunity to be a part of this special event.”
