BILOXI, MS - Wednesday's game between the Biloxi Shuckers and Mobile BayBears has been postponed due to heavy rain in the Biloxi area. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Thursday with first pitch at 5:35 pm.
Gates will open at 4:00 pm for a 5:35 pm first pitch. The Shuckers and BayBears will play two seven-inning games, with the second game starting approximately 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first game.

Tickets can be exchanged exclusively at the MGM Park Box Office on game days from 10 am through the game and during normal business hours Monday through Friday from 10 am to 5 pm.
The Shuckers honor our First Responders with First Responders Night at the ballpark presented by WXXV. The evening begins with the second annual Guns N' Hoses softball game featuring First Responders from around the Gulf Coast.

During Game One of the doubleheader, the Shuckers will wear special Biloxi Police Department jerseys designed to honor fallen Biloxi Officer Robert McKeithen. The jerseys will be auctioned off during the game, with proceeds from the jersey auction going to the Robert McKeithen Family Fund. Bidding will occur as a silent auction from the time the gates open until the end of the third inning in Game Two. In the top of the fourth inning of Game Two, the auction will go live in front of the Shuckers Shop. Following the second game, winning bidders will go down to the field and receive their game-worn jersey from the Shuckers player.
