Broadcast team members record podcasts and call games at the Wesley Barrow Stadium for more than 650 spectators. The team works out of the 200 square foot climate controlled Press Box with data communications links that control the public address system and LED scoreboard.

The Urban Youth Academy is a big part of Major League Baseball’s plan to revitalize baseball in the inner city. The New Orleans MLB Urban Youth Academy offers a positive and unique learning environment as it provides young people throughout Southern Louisiana with a wealth of opportunities to enhance their skills and knowledge on and off the field.

You’re invited to join Reginald Singleton, Roshae Gibson and Jerald James for all your sports predictions and major topics in the sports world. Check out the MLB UYA NOLA Jr. Broadcast team as they rundown MLB, NFL, NBA and other relevant sports topics from the Press Box of Barrow Stadium in New Orleans.
