One thing that you can say about New Orleans is that it is hot… especially in August, which is when we were there photographing these ballparks (what we won't do for our fans!). Needless to say, a good idea for the stadium would be a pool… and as you can see it gets plenty of usage. We were tempted to take a dip ourselves as the temperatures soared to the high 90's (as did the humidity). Unfortunately we were too busy trying to track down the mosquito that flew off with our car.
