SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Babies may be delivered by storks, but Valentines are delivered by seagulls. At least for Biloxi Shuckers fans. Tuesday, team mascot Schooner the Seagull flew around South Mississippi making special Valentine's Day deliveries.
D'Iberville Elementary School teacher Mollie Thies was surprised in front of all her first-grade students when Schooner swooped into the school cafeteria to deliver a gift from her husband.
Schooner even dropped by the WLOX Newsroom to surprise our Executive Producer Mark Lieberman with game tickets and a cupcake from his wife.
Opening Day for the 2017 season is Thursday, April 6, 2017. The Shuckers will take on the Montgomery Biscuits in Montgomery. The first game of the season at MGM Park in Biloxi will be Wednesday, April 12, at 6:35pm against the Pensacola Blue Wahoos.
