The Washington Nationals would take over the Yankees old haunts in Columbus in 2007. The Zephyrs were looking for a real commitment and they found it from the New York Mets. The Mets in many ways would be a perfect fit. While down in New Orleans, we found that the remaining residents had the same sense of determination in the face of tragedy, as we had last seen in our own hometown of NYC only a few years earlier. It was a sense of understanding. One that we hope continues to thrive.
