The Zephyrs would be the last stop before the big show, for many future stars in the Houston Astros organization. 1999 saw 23 yr old Lance Berkman hit .323, 8 hr, 49 rbi in only 226 at bats. Morgan Ensberg would hit 30 homers over two seasons with 98 RBI and a .300 batting average. The Zephyrs overall attendance would come back to earth, but still average between 380,000 and 420,000 throughout the Astros reign in New Orleans.
