Privateer Park - New Orleans, Louisiana

Located on the East Campus of the University of New Orleans.

Displaced from Denver by big league expansion in 1993, the Zephyrs shared home field with the Privateers for four seasons. In 2002, the University changed the name to Maestri Field to honor the 29 years of service of head coach Ron Maestri, now the ebullient COO of the Zephyrs.

Zephyr Field - Metairie, Louisiana

Located safely west of the congestion of downtown.

Main entrance behind home plate.

The days of New Orleans as the last bastion of the nickel pay phone are long gone, but at least the booths resemble baseballs.

Tree blossoms resemble cayenne peppers.

The melting pot of America.

Where diverse cultures blissfully co-exist.

U.S. Highway 61 stretches behind the leftfield fence, carrying traffic east to the French Quarter and the Super Dome. The latter hosted Triple-A ball in 1977.

Zephyr Field.

Open for business in 2006.

The secret of life is keeping a neat scorecard
