New Orleans’ minor-league baseball team has played its last game as the Zephyrs. That is old news.
The new identity of the team will be revealed at a news conference on Nov. 15, team vice president and general manager Cookie Rojas said Tuesday at the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation Quarterback Club at The Cannery.
Rojas also spoke about the eight-game Catholic League football schedule to be played at what is still known for now as Zephyr Field. That series opens Friday night when John Curtis faces Brother Martin in a game to be televised nationally on ESPNU.
The final details to the ballpark for its football configuration are just about done, Rojas said.
Rojas also hinted that the “Shrine on Airline” moniker would remain for the ballpark, but did not indicate how the club’s new nickname might or might not play into the official name of the facility going forward.
