MGM’s high school baseball debut pushed back a day

The inaugural high school baseball game in MGM Park is going to have to wait a day.

The matchup between the Biloxi Indians and D’Iberville Warriors, billed as the Battle of Back Bay Tomahawk Cup, has been pushed back from this evening to Friday at 7 p.m.

Tickets sold for this evening will be honored Friday night.

Meantime, baseball fans also have a chance to see a community college doubleheader Saturday afternoon when Gulf Coast entertains Baton Rouge Community College at MGM Park. Games are at 1 and 4 p.m.

News and notes

A case of gas on Division Street:¬†Contractors making emergency sewer repairs under the intersection at Division and Caillavet streets knew a sewer line was blocked, but what they found 12 feet underground left them with a case of gas.

Inside looking out, from the Biloxi Lighthouse: Everyone has seen the Biloxi Lighthouse, well at least everyone who has been to Biloxi, but a new real-time video feed from inside the cupola of the lighthouse gives you a new perspective. Visitors Center staff, who control the image, plan to move it around from time to time. ¬†To see the live feed, courtesy of the city’s YouTube page, click here.
