WLOX Editorial: Shuckers match-up with Major League Baseball team

FDR was president, Babe Ruth was still playing baseball. The first nighttime Major League Baseball game was played. And a major league baseball team, the Washington Senators, was here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast for spring training. 

The year? 1935.  We haven't had a major league team here since.  

We are happy to see that will change next spring when the Minor League Shuckers will host their big league parent team, the Milwaukee Brewers, in an exhibition game on April 2.  

The Biloxi Shuckers added a new dimension to family entertainment here on the coast in 2015. We hope you will continue to support our national pastime as minor league baseball enters its second season in Biloxi in 2016.

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