Las Vegas Sports Teams

With the Vegas Golden Knights moving to Las Vegas, the valley is seeing it's first major sports team. Still in talk, Vegas hopes to gain the Raiders (NFL team) in the near future. With all this talk about major sports teams coming to town, I wanted to take a minutes to recognize some of the other local teams we have in the valley. 

If you're every looking for something different to do, check out on of these teams! 

 

Las Vegas 51s (Minor League Baseball)

The Las Vegas 51s, formerly known as the Las Vegas Stars, are a Minor League Baseball team of the Pacific Coast League (PCL) and the Triple-A affiliate of the New York Mets. They are located in Las Vegas, and are named for Area 51 which is located near Rachel, Nevada, about 80 miles north of Las Vegas. The team logo jokingly depicts one of the grey aliens thought by UFO believers to inhabit that base. They play at Cashman Field which has a capacity of 9,334 people. The 51s won the PCL championship as the Stars in 1986 and 1988.

Their season will start back on April 6, 2017.

Fabulous Sin City Rollergirls (Roller Derby)

The Fabulous Sin City Rollergirls or Sin City Rollergirls (SCRG), is the local Las Vegas, Nevada roller derby team, and a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). Roller Derby has been around for decades but uniformity was brought to flat track roller derby in 2004 with the creation of the United Leagues Coalition, now the WFTDA. Recently the sport has gained in popularity, likely in part through the 2009 film, Whip It. The SCRG began as the Las Vegas Neanderdolls in 2005. It was started by coaches Ivanna S. Pankin, owner of the online derby store Sin City Skates, and Trish the Dish. Ivanna and Trish had played with the Arizona Roller Derby and finding no team in Las Vegas, created one. Shawna th'Dead was the first member of Neanderdolls. The Neanderdolls grew in membership and became a travel only team. Thereafter they changed to the SCRG.

As of April 2010, the SCRG consists of four home teams and a travel team. The four Las Vegas-themed home teams are the Tommy Gun Terrors, The Notorious VIP, Hoover Damned, and the Flying Aces. The SCRG is also assisted by generous support staff. The SCRG members consist of a diverse group of women ages 18–55 years old. The WFTDA found in its demographic survey that throughout its member leagues, 71% are between the ages of 21 and 44 years, and 91% have some form of post secondary education. The SCRG derby season runs from fall through the spring.

They are currently recruiting for their next season.
