“We’ve partnered with William Carey in the past and it has always been a wonderful experience,” said Biloxi Shuckers General Manager Hunter Reed. “This is an incredible opportunity to welcome our fans into the ballpark before the season opens and show them our 2022 squad prior to Opening Day.”
“We certainly appreciate the Shuckers letting us be a part of kicking off their season with an exhibition game,” said Crusaders head coach Bobby Halford. “The Shuckers have always supported our University and we look forward for our team to experience the opportunity to see what a first class professional organization looks like.”
