NEVADA – After 32 years, the Reno Aces will temporarily rebrand as the Reno Silver Sox for certain games during the 2024 season. This exciting announcement was made on Tuesday, revealing that the Aces will pay homage to the Silver Sox by donning their iconic silver and blue v-neck jerseys. Custom hats and throwback-themed promotions will also be part of the experience.
“Professional baseball has been a part of Reno’s history for over half a century, and the Silver Sox played an integral role which brought countless experiences to all that saw them play,” said Reno Aces General Manager & COO Chris Phillips. “We are excited to see this project come to fruition, reignite those memories, and allow the community to share their Silver Sox stories while providing an opportunity for the next generation of Reno baseball fans to create their own.”
The Silver Sox first began Reno’s professional baseball journey in 1947 before establishing a long-standing presence in the California League in 1955. Remarkably, the Silver Sox hold the distinction of being the only franchise to win back-to-back championships twice in league history.
During their illustrious run from 1955 to 1992, the Silver Sox had an impressive roster that included 20 MLB All-Stars and three players who were elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame: Roberto Alomar, Bobby Cox, and Dennis Eckersley.
Stay tuned for specific dates when the Reno Silver Sox will make their return during the 2024 season.
