Marine throwing out a pitch at an Aces game in 2015.
After the 2008 season the Tucson Sidewinders moved to Reno, NV and became the Reno Aces. The name is a reference to the city's fame as one of the top gambling destinations in the world.
The Aces were managed during their first five seasons by former Major League player Brett Butler. They play their home games at Aces Ballpark in downtown Reno. The Aces played in the Pacific South Division in 2009-2010, then moved to the Pacific North Division when the Tucson Padres replaced the Portland Beavers in the PCL.
