    The Las Vegas 51s bring professional Triple-A baseball to town every summer. This Oakland A's affiliate, part of the Pacific Coast League, plays at Cashman Field from April through September.

    The team's name comes from Area 51, the informal name of a classified military facility near Edwards Air Force Base right outside Las Vegas. Area 51 has long been rumored to be the site of some extraterrestrial activity in the 1950s, hence the team's gray-headed alien mascot Cosmo.
