Long before "Cashman Field II" became home to the Triple-A Las Vegas 51s, Cashman Field I was serving as the home to professional baseball and the Class C "Las Vegas Wranglers". Cashman Field I was indeed located on the same grounds as the current Cashman Field II and was built into a bowl in much the same fashion that the current ballpark does.  The Original Cashman Field I however, was far less conventional of a baseball park. The main grandstand which ran along the 1st baseline (and not behind the plate), was a massive but simple concrete structure and ran all the way to the right field foul pole. The areas behind home plate and along the 3rd base lines however, was just the opposite… 3-5 rows deep and barely held enough people to be designated an actual seating area. Cashman Field was really a football stadium and was built like one, but would be the site of all professional baseball in Las Vegas for 7 non-consecutive years from 1948 until 1958.
