LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The Las Vegas 51s baseball team could be moving to a new $65 million stadium near the Red Rock Casino in Summerlin.

Former pawnshop owner Steve Mack and the Howard Hughes Corporation are looking to buy the AAA team that currently plays at Cashman Field. If that purchase goes through, the developers want to move the team to a brand new stadium called The Ballpark at Summerlin Centre.

On Tuesday, 51s Executive Vice President Don Logan told FOX5 that the team purchase is in the works. "It's imminent. I think there's seven pieces of information we have to get clued in on ... We're chugging away trying to get it done," Logan said.

It's an idea many Summerlin residents are calling a home run.

"What more can you ask for? You got baseball, you got people coming and using the stadium and a shopping center as well. Great idea," said baseball fan Bernie Lootz, "I got to a bunch of games down there already, and the stadium is a little antiquated. It would be a great score for us out here."

"It's a good idea I think. It would put a lot of people to work, we need work. We need more economy. We need to diversify the economy," added Summerlin resident Jean Renteria.

Up to 9,000 people could soon be buying peanuts and cracker jacks at the new ballpark, which would be right next door to the future Shops at Summerlin.

Developers would need to finalize the purchase of the team and gain support from the city of Las Vegas, Clark County and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority before construction can begin.
