The stadium's greatest asset is its location. It fits very nice into its downtown surroundings and there doesn't seem to be a bad seat. Management has done a great job keeping up the appearance of the stadium,
The night I went was a Firework Night and I asked Keon Wong if he could sign after the game. He explained to me on fireworks night all of the players have to leave the stadium before the fireworks start or they are stuck until the firework display truck leaves, which can be a more than an hour later. After the game, the Hot Rod players literally galloped back to their locker room and some of the Loons players chose to stay in the dugout until after the fireworks and I got their autographs there.
I'm thinking about a return trip next year to this ballpark and a visit to a different cave system.

With this ballpark trip, I decided to drive to New Orleans and try to to get Javier Beaz on some cards. The history of the Zephyrs is vast and my cliff note version of baseball involving the Zephyrs goes like this: The Miami Marlins are entering their 6th season of affiliation with the New Orleans Zephyrs and the Zephyrs arrived in New Orleans from Denver in 1993. During there time in New Orleans, the Zeps have been affiliated with the Brewers, Astros, and the Nationals while playing in the Pacific Coast League. Maestri Field for four years and then moved to Zephyr Field in 1997. I decided to switch my writing format to appeal more to the person just going to watch a game with me commenting on the pictures.
Random Tidbit: The Zephres mascot, Boudreaux D. Nutria, is a hybrid creation including the features of a bear, dog, manatee, and walrus. Try explaining that to a four year old.
Stadium Grade: B
Good concessions and simple layout. If I have to watch AAA baseball, I prefer a stadium like this.
Zephyr Field is a 10,000 seat stadium
This place serves some awesome BBQ Nachos.
The highlight of the stadium is the concessions.
Concourse offers a lot of walking space
Distractions like this in stadiums annoy me.
Gift Shop was closed on my visit
I had locals tell me they call the stadium the "The Shrine On Airline"
Nothing wrong with a good functioning scoreboard.
Zephyr Field offers a ton of shade.
View from my seat.
No surprise to see a party shack in New Orleans.
