Zephyrs Are a Hometown Home Run

View All Sports

Based in Metairie, the New Orleans Zephyrs are a Minor League Baseball (MiLB) team playing in the Pacific Coast League, a Triple-A Affiliate of the Miami Marlins Major League Baseball (MLB) team.

Running nearly concurrently with the MLB season, the MiLB league schedule runs from April through September. The Zephyrs field a regularly competitive team and can be found in the upper rankings of their division. They play at Zephyr Field, featuring 10,000 chair-backed seats with cup-holders, plus seating for nearly 1,000 fans on “The Levee” — a grass-covered hill in center field.

Unique in the professional sports world, Zephyr Field features a pool and jacuzzi area just over the right field fence where groups of fans can watch the game while they keep cool. With a strong fan base, the Zephyrs have drawn more than 320,000 fans in each of their nine seasons.
