With Baby Cakes leaving soon, what's the prospect of another minor league team in New Orleans?

Fans and those with an interest in New Orleans' Triple-A baseball team, the Baby Cakes, are saddened by the realization that the team is leaving the city.

And, there's even more concern about what it means for the future of professional baseball in the metropolitan area. Is it gone forever?

Walter Leger Sr., who has served as general counsel for the Zephyrs and Baby Cakes and is connected with the Carribean Baseball Initiative, which helped bring a minor league team to New Orleans, said he thinks it can happen.

I really hope so, he said. I don't think we'll get a team for the 2020 season, but we are hopeful of having one for 2021. But before we get another team, we have to fix up the stadium.
