This AAA franchise of the Houston Astros is defintitely worth the drive out to Metarie (about 15-20 minutes from downtown). It has produced some big name MLB talent, and is a great family outing because of the low cost. The field is top-notch for AAA, and you are getting the chance to watch some of the future stars of MLB (some washed up players too...) Plenty of sunshine, hotdogs, and beer should appease any sports fan!

For a fee, you and your crew can take in a Zeyphers game from the pool in right field. Believe me, in the summer, it would be worth its weight in gold!
