Fastball – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans
Running a sports business in New Orleans comes with a number of unique challenges. Ask the Voodoo, the Jazz, or for many years the struggling Saints.
On the other hand, the New Orleans Zephyrs seem to have found a winning formula. Winning enough for a new ownership to take over the team and unveil plans for an optimistic future.
The team’s new Assistant General Manager, Donna Light, is Peter’s guest on this edition of Out to Lunch.
Mark Olalde is Director of Operations for the recently unveiled Xtreme Xperience NOLA. Xtreme Xperience allows anyone with a drivers licence to get in a high performance race car and race around a professional car race track in Avondale.
Peter’s talking talking New Orleans baseball and New Orleans motor racing.
