RENO, Nev. -- The Reno Aces season is coming to an end. There are 11 regular season games left, and six of those will be played at Aces Ballpark.

The Aces are in their final regular season homestand through Wednesday. Although it is undetermined if they will make the playoffs this year, officials said this season is definitely one to remember. "It’s been a tremendous season on and off the field," said Reno Aces Chief Operating Officer Eric Edelstein. "It's been a lot of fun, new manager, a lot of new players."

This season, the Aces are setting records both on and off the field. "Attendance has been terrific this year. We’re up about 30,000 fans right now to date from where we were a year ago."

The Aces also had record attendance for a single game last month. More than 10,000 fans packed Aces Ballpark on July 4. "Our best weekend ever, it’s been a lot of positives in 2014 and a lot to look forward to next year."

Edelstein believes attendance is up this season for a number of reasons, including new promotions. He also said Aces fans are the best in the league. "As we have the smallest market in Triple-A baseball, we have the highest per capita attendance here, so the fans that are here do come out in force and we're really proud of that fact."

Edelstein also said on the field, it has been a great year for Aces players. “We had 10 former Reno Aces make their major league debuts in 2014, which is the most in any single year in our teams history, so it’s been a lot fun to see guys progress and get their shot in the big leagues."

If the Aces make the playoffs this year, Edelstein said their first home game will be in two weeks.

If you want to catch any of the last few Aces home games, Friday’s game starts at 7:05 p.m. against Iowa. Officials said tickets are selling fast for that game, along with Saturday’s home game.
