The biloxi shuckers.


Biloxi's new minor league baseball team, the Biloxi Shuckers, is providing a fun, affordable, all-American experiences for fans. A member of the Southern League and Double-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, the team's season runs April 9 through September 7.

Home games not only include fireworks, community-inspired concessions, giveaways, and more, but are played at the new MGM Park. This state-of-the-art outdoor entertainment and sports complex is located across the street from the Beau Rivage, and within a short walk of restaurants, casinos, and shops and will host festivals, concerts, and other events.

"We see this dynamic new entertainment and sports complex as a catalyst for economic growth," says George P. Corchis Jr., MGM Resorts president. "This game changer will have a positive impact on the quality of life, as well as tourism for the entire Mississippi Gulf Coast."

Mary Cracchiolo Spain, regional director of communications for MGM Resorts, adds, "Not to be missed is the experience of kicking back in a beautiful new ballpark, getting a hot dog or shrimp po-boy and a Barq's root beer float on a nice summer evening with the Gulf and Beau Rivage as a backdrop, and enjoying America's pastime with family and friends!"--Sandra Massey Buckley
