WLOX Editorial: Congratulations to the Shuckers

WLOX Editorial: Congratulations to the Shuckers

Two years ago, professional minor league baseball in Biloxi was just a proposal. Now Biloxi has a new ballpark and a team with a successful season under its belt. The Shuckers have done well in 2015 especially for a team that couldn't play a home game until June 6th.

With the regular season over and the Shuckers in the playoffs, congratulations are in order for the players, coaches and administrators for enduring the difficulty of moving to a new town and bringing wholesome entertainment to the Gulf Coast.

We hope the fans will continue to support baseball in Biloxi as the Shuckers become a new tradition. That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
