Brewers, Shuckers Extend Player Development Deal

Biloxi Shuckers logoThe Milwaukee Brewers and Biloxi Shuckers (Class AA; Southern League) extended their player-development contract (PDC) by two years, through the 2020 season.

The last PDC was set to expire after the 2016 season.

“We are extremely proud to announce the continuation of this partnership between the Brewers and Shuckers,” said Shuckers President Ken Young. “We have developed a great relationship with the Brewers over the past two years and the impact of the players and coaches on the field and in the community has been tremendous.”

Over the last year-and-a-half, the Biloxi Shuckers have posted a Southern League best 117 wins, including a South Division Championship in 2015 and a berth in the Southern League Championship Series. Biloxi Shuckers’ players and coaches have also been active around the Gulf Coast, participating in youth baseball camps and clinics, as well as taking part in numerous school programs.

“The Brewers and Shuckers have a great partnership, and we are excited about this extension,” said Brewers Farm Director Tom Flanagan. “MGM Park is one of the premier ballparks in all of Minor League Baseball, and we look forward to playing there for years to come.”
