The baseball stadium construction is underway, the team and general manager have been identified, and now it's time for you, the fans, to name the team. The Name the Team Contest for the Biloxi Baseball Club kicks off at midnight tonight. Fans can suggest names at www.baseballbiloxi.com or at www.wxxv25.com. General Manager, Buck Rogers, says the word “Biloxi” must be in the name and it should translate into a logo to represents the team. After three weeks of nominations, the franchise will have a run-off selection to select the name for your Biloxi Baseball Club.
Ken Young, the President of the Biloxi Baseball Club, says, “Send in what their favorite name for the team will be. We'll be looking for something that's fun, that connotes the area. We will then narrow it down to five. Whoever sends in that winning entry we will have some type of prize for it.” The Biloxi Baseball Club is set to begin play in the Double-A Southern League next April.
