Zephyrs become new AAA team writes about the new two year deal with the New Orleans Zephyrs:

The New York Mets tonight announced a two-year partnership with the New Orleans Zephyrs to become the Mets' new Triple A farm team. The Pacific Coast League team, most recently an affiliate of the Washington Nationals, will continue to play its games at Zephyr Field.

"We are excited to relocate our top minor league operation to New Orleans to become part of the rebirth and renaissance of one of America's great cities" said Jeff Wilpon, Sr. EVP & COO, New York Mets. "We expect to take an active role in the community -- on and off the field. We thank the fans of the Virginia Beach area for their support for the past 38 years and salute Don Beaver and Ron Maestri for their interest in partnering with the Mets for the next chapter of our player development efforts and the City's redevelopment efforts."
