Mississippi Surge and Biloxi pro baseball form a strategic alliance

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Tim Bennett, minority owner of the Biloxi Double A minor league baseball franchise says the alliance with the Mississippi Surge will help the teams and their fan base.

During Friday's Peoria Rivermen and Surge game at 7:05 in the Mississippi Coast Coliseum, Bennett will drop the puck.  Interested baseball fans will be able to register for ticket information at a table set up at the hockey game.

"This is an opportunity for us to get our feet on the ground more quickly than expected, fusing the energy of both operations to better serve the rabid sports fans in Biloxi and throughout the region," stated Bennett. 

Baseball fans have the opportunity to sign up for ticket information by visiting the team website at www.baseballbiloxi.com or by visiting the Surge ticket offices at the Coast Coliseum through the remainder of the SPHL season.

Local Surge owner, Jimmy Hodge said,"We are as excited as everyone else about minor league baseball coming to the Coast. We salute the new baseball team and its ownership for their commitment to the Coast as we, too, expect our relationship to strengthen both brands and their respective fan bases."

The Surge have offered the baseball team to use their ticket services until the minor league baseball team opens its own local office in Biloxi.
