Former Major League Baseball player Barry Lyons was the first speaker in a series on the new baseball exhibit in Biloxi. “Our Love Affair with Baseball” will open Tuesday at the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art. WXXV is a proud sponsor of this great community event.
Lyons was speaking at the kick-off luncheon, which will feature a speaker on select Fridays centered on Coast baseball’s future, past history and present from the Biloxi Shuckers to a look back at the old Major League training sites on the Coast. The speakers coming to Biloxi include former Mets all-star Darryl Strawberry and former Braves star Dale Murphy. “We’re hoping that the public will come in and see and enjoy our weekly guest speakers that will share stories from their respective careers and tell them what baseball means to their lives. We just want to celebrate baseball and that’s basically what this is all about,” said Lyons.
Starting this coming Wednesday, Barry Lyons will be on set here at WXXV every Wednesday at 5:30 to preview the baseball guest speakers for the week at the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum. Barry will be our guest every Wednesday until November.
