BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

As a roller coaster season enters the home stretch, the Biloxi Shuckers are shifting into playoff mode.

After winning the first half of the season, the Shuckers will host the first round of the playoffs scheduled to begin on September 10. Post season tickets went on sale at the MGM Park box office at 10 a.m. Thursday morning.

"I walked in about 9:45 a.m. and I already had people waiting outside. By the time I opened, six or seven fans were in line to buy tickets," said Shuckers front office employee, Brent Main.

The Shuckers are wrapping up a memorable season. While MGM Park was being built, the club was forced to go on an extended road trip. The Shuckers played at a high level and the opportunity to host the first round of the playoffs is just part of an incredible story.

 "Playoff bound. It's been a magical, mysterious year full of emotion and now we're going to the playoffs. This could be a Hollywood story down the stretch," said General Manager Buck Rodgers.
 
The ball club has high expectations going into the playoffs. From fans in the stands, to plays on the field, Rogers says the chance to bring a Southern League championship to Biloxi and the coast would be a great way to cap off the season.

"With everything this team has been through and the reaction of the coast and how they supported us, I think this will be big. Emotions wise, and excitement wise, I think this will be great," Rodgers added.

Tickets can be purchased either online through Ticketmaster or at the MGM Park box office.
