Biloxi Shuckers on hold until 2021

While the Major League Baseball season is now just two weeks away, the return of Minor League Baseball is no longer in the year 2020.

On the last day of June, the MLB pulled the plug on the entire 2020 operation, effectively making this the first summer without minor league games since the league’s inception all the way back in 1901.

The future for teams like the Biloxi Shuckers, the AA affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers is just as unpredictable as the virus that canceled the season in the first place.

All that being said, the Shuckers are focused more on the road ahead than the rearview mirror. Biloxi Shuckers General Manager Hunter Reed said, “We found out the same day everybody else found out. That’s the way it was going to happen. It was disappointing for us, obviously. We did put in a lot of work and time and effort and energy into making this a very memorable season. We’re preparing and ready to get back to business as usual when April 2021 rolls around and get the Southern League season rolling and get the Shuckers back on the field.”

The minor league season was supposed to start all the way back on April 9th.
