Batting practice coming to MGM Park in October

Minor League Baseball took one of the hardest hits from the coronavirus pandemic, having to cancel its 2020 season entirely as a result.

But the Biloxi Shuckers keep making the most out of a bad situation.

Perhaps a once in a lifetime experience here on the Gulf Coast, the Biloxi Shuckers are now offering live batting practice at MGM Park.

Starting at $40 per person, groups of at least four can step up to the plate for an exclusive one hour session.

Batters will have access to the Shuckers home dugout, the ability to choose their own walk-up songs, and a bird’s eye view of their very own name displayed on the video board in right field.

Additional purchases include a commemorative highlight reel and the ‘extra innings’ package for extended B.P. Shuckers General Manager Hunter Reed said, “Well, you know, we were just brainstorming in the office what would people like to do. And we heard from a few people that it might be something fun to get out here and take a few swings on the field and we thought, you know what let’s do it. Let’s try it. It’s going to be a professional grade pitching machine going out there. We have our bats that the players use, the helmets. It’s going to be a lot of the same stuff those guys use. So, it’s going to be fun. We’re going to put you to the test and see if you can live up to the standards.”

Time slots will be available starting on October 5th with bookings available seven days a week. In order to reserve a time slot, it must be booked at least one week in advance.
