Las Vegas Aviators, Las Vegas Ballpark team up with Southern Nevada Health District to declare Las Vegas Ballpark a smoke-free facility

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
March 31, 2022

Just in time for the 2022 baseball season, the Las Vegas Aviators®, Las Vegas Ballpark® and the Southern Nevada Health District have teamed up to declare Las Vegas Ballpark a smoke-free facility. The new policy takes effect on the Aviators’ opening day, April 5, 2022.

“Encouraging good health is everyone’s business, so we are proud to do our part by partnering with the Southern Nevada Health District to make Las Vegas Ballpark a smoke-free facility,” said Don Logan, President and COO, Las Vegas Aviators. “We want the game to be enjoyable for everyone and set a good example for fans of all ages.”

The new policy prohibits the use of all smoke and tobacco products, including cigarette, chewing tobacco, e-cigarettes (including Juul) and all vapes on Ballpark property.  Signage will be posted at all entrances of Las Vegas Ballpark, and fans can expect to see educational messaging to be shared throughout Aviators’ games all year.

“As more Las Vegas sports teams opt for smoke-free home games, our community continues to win. The Southern Nevada Health District is excited that the Las Vegas Aviators are now going smoke-free at the Las Vegas Ballpark. The less we expose our families, children, and neighbors to smoking and secondhand smoke, the healthier we will all be,” said Dr. Fermin Leguen, District Health Officer for the Southern Nevada   Health District.

The Las Vegas Aviators’ season begins on April 5 at 7:05 p.m. at Las Vegas Ballpark against the Reno Aces. For ticket and game information, visit https://www.milb.com/las-vegas/tickets
