Biloxi City Officials and Partners Prepare for Opening Day

Construction crews are working tirelessly to make the Shuckers home opener a day to remember.
Tim Bennett, Shuckers Co-Owner, said, “You can see a beautiful ball park. We have the Shed terrace which is immediately to your left. We have a seating bowl with all the seats completed.”
Yates has worked around the clock to ensure all public areas will be ready for the game. The only areas not open will be suites and back of the house elements.
But outside the stadium are plans for even more fun. Mayor FoFo Gilich said, “We want everyone to be part of not only the game but the game experience.”
The Beau Rivage will have a tent set up which will have a kid’s area, games, snow cones, face painting, balloons and some performers from the show “Yaye”. That’s not mention “Shuck it Rich” scratch offs, photo ops, music and food.
Biloxi police have drafted a plan to minimize congestions and allow safe places for pedestrians to get to the stadium.  Major Jim Adamo, with Biloxi Police Department, said, “When they come out, they’re going to be channeled to the cross walk area. I’m going to have police officers at those crosswalks that will assist them across the street.” They will also be shutting down Caillavet Street from Howard Ave to 90 to allow for pedestrian traffic. Biloxi police want game day fans to know that only the north entrance will be open for the game. “We’re going to be putting up barricades and closing off the Vieux Marche area for the pre-game day experience. We will be making sure that the pedestrians that want to get in this area can do so, but motor vehicles will not be allowed,” said Major Adamo.
Police say just follow the signs and directors for a home opener that’s a grand slam.
