As President and COO of the new Las Vegas Aviators, Don Logan continues to hit home runs.


“You get one chance to have an inaugural year. We’ve got to make sure we do it right and, pardon the pun, knock it out of the ballpark. The idea of the logo was to make it fun and incorporate the mountains of Red Rock. The color scheme is really cool. The 51s [name] never resonated with people. The Howard Hughes Corporation owns the team. Howard Hughes was an aviator. Even beyond that, we’ve got Nellis Air Force Base here. Aviation is a big part of Southern Nevada.”

What's Now: Triple-A baseball has a new identity in Las Vegas. Under the leadership of President and COO Don Logan, the Las Vegas 51s have been rebranded the Las Vegas Aviators—the city’s professional team of the Pacific Coast League (PCL) and affiliate of the Oakland Athletics. The team has a new logo, new uniforms and a new home at brand-new Las Vegas Ballpark—the “nicest baseball facility in the country”—which opens April 9.

What's Next: Logan says the Las Vegas Ballpark will be a “community asset” with not only regular season games, but also major league exhibition games, high school games, American Legion games, college tournaments and fantasy camps. Aside from baseball, the stadium will host concerts, holiday activities and charity events.
