WLOX Editorial: Time to play ball

A year ago there was plenty of talk and optimism about professional minor league baseball in Biloxi, but there was a lot of doubt as well. Back then we were talking about the size of the stadium, where to park, the costs and what we could call the team. And many of those conversations continue.

But now we know the team is the Shuckers, and we are also speculating about things like; is this a hitters' park and will lefties or righties fair better.

Whether you agree or not with the financial decisions the city of Biloxi made to bring baseball to the Mississippi coast, it is here.

We hope you will brush up on your baseball jargon, and support America's pass time in Biloxi as we finally say play ball.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts toeditorials@wlox.com.
