From 1983 to 2000, the Las Vegas Stars were an affiliate of the San Diego Padres until they changed their name to the Las Vegas 51s. The team name came from Area 51, the secret government site in the Nevada desert said to be the home of extra-terrestrial aliens from the Roswell incident in 1947. The team's logo depicts an alien over the number 51. In 2019 they were renamed the Las Vegas Aviators.
