“The Triple-A National Championship Game is a jewel event for so many across the game, and this format will be great for fans,” said Morgan Sword, MLB’s Executive Vice President, Baseball Operations. “We look forward to celebrating the conclusion of the 2023 Minor League season at one of the top ballparks in the sport.”

“We’re very pleased to host the Triple-A Championship Game here at Las Vegas Ballpark and crowning a champion in a venue made for events of this magnitude,” said Aviators President & Chief Operations Officer Don Logan. “After last year’s successful Triple-A Championship Weekend, we look forward to hosting the best teams in Triple-A baseball and adding to the growing list of championship events held here in Southern Nevada.”

Since the Triple-A National Championship Game’s inception in 2006, the Pacific Coast League has won nine of the 15 winner-take-all games against the International League. The Durham Bulls had the overall best record among the 30 Triple-A teams in 2021, but a traditional postseason was not scheduled due to COVID-19 restrictions.  In 2022, the Bulls won their third national championship in the last 12 editions.
