Batter up! Biloxi Night is Wednesday at MGM Park

The Biloxi Shuckers celebrate all things Biloxi this Wednesday at 6:35 p.m. when the City of Biloxi is featured as part of the minor league baseball team’s One Coast series.

Biloxi Mayor Andrew “FoFo” Gilich, former Major Leaguer Barry Lyons and local root beer scion “Bones” Barq will toss ceremonial first pitches. Hundreds of airmen currently in training will represent Keesler Air Force Base, which has been a huge part of Biloxi since its establishment in 1941.

A highlight of the evening will be a video message from Biloxi native and Apollo 13 hero Fred Haise, and those attending the game will receive Barq’s in a Bottle.

Special ticket packages for “Biloxi Night” are available at the Shuckers Box Office.
