The Las Vegas 51s will be wearing a different uniform on select nights starting in August. They'll come on the field as the Las Vegas Reyes de Platas on Tuesday nights.

It's all a part of Minor League Baseball's Latino focused initiative called "Es Divertido Ser un Fan," which means, “It’s Fun To Be A Fan.”

On Tuesday nights in August, Cashman Field will be transformed with the new Reyes De Plata logo. Everything from the food to the PA announcements will reflect the Latino culture.

Las Vegas is one of four cites included in this initiative. The program will also debut in Charlotte, N.C., Geneva, Ill., and Visalia, Calif.

The Las Vegas 51s plan to continue this initiative in the 2018 season.
