My brother is in town this week and I took him to the game last night (Monday). He was blown away by the stadium and experience. Great game. Go Aviators.

Awesome! I finally cracked the code on what ticket to get that's in the shade for Sunday games ($20/free parking) with their 12:05 pm start. 7 pm is too late for me lol.

I haven't been to the park yet. Just curious as to what sections are in the shade, in case I decide to go to an afternoon game like you did.

A properly oriented ballpark faces east/northeast from home plate through 2nd base. That way the sun is kept out of the batter's eyes during afternoon games. If oriented in this manner, right field is the last shaded seating area.

That said, I have no idea if Las Vegas Field is oriented as such.

First pic is from the far third base side looking toward the first base side. As you can see, except for that very last upside down triangle section next to the foul line / poll (they look like bench seats with a table to drink and eat and watch), the top several rows are in the shade - Sunday game (12:05 pm first pitch), pic taken around 11- 11:30 am.

Second pic is from the top row of the far third base side. You can just see the top row in the full shade, and the second row gets into the shade after around noon. Another Sunday 12:05 pm game start.

Haven't been to any 7pm weekday + Saturday games. I believe there are noon start holiday games as well.
