    Outage and Outrage

    By Greg Blake Miller

    On the evening of July 3, a storm swept over the Las Vegas Valley and shut off the power at Cashman Field. The baseball game was canceled, but 5,000 fans lingered in the gathering darkness for the fireworks show. Maybe it was just the beauty of lightning at work, or the holiday mood, or, as baseball novelist W.P. Kinsella would have it, “the thrill of the grass,” but the night was a model of patience and persistence for a city that needs both.

    Night on Black Mountain

    The valley got its fireworks a day early this year, as a thunderstorm rocked the sky on July 3. The storm knocked the power out at Cashman Field, briefly turned Henderson roads into rivers and, here, seemed to reach out to make contact with the television towers in the McCullough Mountains. The next morning, our flag was still there.

    The Trouble With Cashman Field

    By Sean DeFrank

    There’s been a lot of speculation about the future of professional baseball in Las Vegas. Mayor Oscar Goodman has come out this month and said that a major league team is looking at the city, and the 51s’ player development contract with the Toronto Blue Jays expires next month, although the parties seem likely to renew their partnership through 2012. Regardless of those developments, this is certain: No matter which team is playing here in the next few years, it will be housed at Cashman Field.
