When the Philadelphia A's left New Orleans in 1910, it left the ballpark without a spring tenant, but that would be quickly resolved in 1911 when the Chicago Cubs came to town to train over the next 2 seasons, and brought with them perhaps the best double-play combination in the history of the game… Future Hall of Famers, Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers and Frank Chance. The Pelicans meanwhile continued their winning ways thanks to Otto Hess (23-8) and Al Klawitter (20-12) putting up a 78-54 record for
another 1st place finish and their 2nd straight Southern Association championship. That run would end in 1912 when Hess was sent to the Boston Braves after 2 excellent seasons here. At Braves Field, Hess wouldn't have the same sort of success, losing 17 games in 1914. The Pelicans began to quickly sink … winning 73 games for a 3rd place finish in 1912 followed by a truly awful 45-85 season in 1913 thanks to Bert Brenner's 0-11 record. 1913 also saw Spring Baseball leave New Orleans for a period of 3 years. A new manager in Johnny Dobbs would help turn things around in 1914 with 80 wins but stadium owner A.J. Heinemann was having a great deal of difficulty with rain water and storm damage at the ballpark which he owned and had been leasing to the Pelicans to play in. He found a great property just down Carrolton where the "White City Amusement Park" had just gone bankrupt. He got the property cheap and decided that instead of building a brand new ballpark… he would simply take the one that he had built in 1908, and move it in sections via teams of mules down the Carrolton Street from the Intersection of (Upper B) Banks Street, to the intersection of (Lower A) Tulane. The move beginning at the end of 1914, wouldn't be complete in time to host a Major League team for Spring Training, but it would open in time for the Pelicans to resume play on April 13th 1915. The Pelicans began the season at the newly dubbed and mule moved "Heinemann Field" as the ballpark was renamed and were excellent behind future NY Yankees Tim Hendryx (26 2B, 14 3B, 6 HR, .325), Slugger and future Philadelphia A's Fred Thomas who hit a monumental 15 2B, 13 3B and 11 HR (No New Orleans Pelican had ever reached the double-digit mark in HR) along with a .265 and future Cleveland Indians' Pop-Boy Smith who was the first 20 game winner at Heinemann with a 20-12 record. This terrific team put up a best ever 91-63 record to take over 1st place and bring their first Championship trophy to the new location and the 3rd overall at this stadium. 134,000 came to the new ballpark to see the Championship team. Future Chicago Cubs' Buck Weaver (17-11) threw the stadium's first no-hitter.
