We have a tentative opening date for MGM Park, new home of the Biloxi Shuckers (Class AA; Southern League), as the team will be selling tickets to a June 6 game against the Mobile BayBears at 7:10 p.m.
Individual game tickets for this game and the remaining 44 games on the home Biloxi Shuckers inaugural season schedule will go on sale at 10 a.m. this Wednesday, May 13, in the team office and Ticketmaster.
Due to demand, fans will be able to buy a maximum of six tickets per purchase for the June 6 game.
The June 6 date is two months earlier than WG Yates Construction is contractually obligated to reach completion on the project. “We are so thankful to Yates and all the subs for their great efforts in making June 6 a possibility,” said Shuckers President Ken Young. “We know the community will love MGM Park and it will be a wonderful feeling for everyone when the first pitch is finally thrown.”
