BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Construction on the new baseball stadium in Biloxi is planned to get under way next week.
Biloxi Mayor A.J. Holloway said a team of architects and engineers will present the details of the project to the Biloxi City Council Tuesday at 10 a.m., and hold a ground-breaking ceremony at the stadium site on Thursday at 2 p.m.
Both the meeting and the ground-breaking ceremony will be open to the public.
Holloway said citizens attending the groundbreaking will be able to register to receive ticket information for the 2015 season, and a drawing will be held to give away two season tickets.
The new stadium will be home to a Double-A Southern League team moving to Biloxi from Huntsville, AL. The stadium is expected to be ready by the first pitch of the 2015 baseball season.
