Biloxi Shuckers vs. William Carey
After more than seven months away from MGM Park, tonight the Biloxi Shuckers made their long-awaited return for the unofficial start of their fourth season on the Gulf Coast.
Welcome home to the Shuckers making their 2018 MGM Park debut with an exhibition game versus William Carey for a second straight season. Shuckers win 9-4.
William Carey Head Baseball Coach Bobby Halford said, “I tell our guys every year, this is the best it’s going to get. I mean you’re not going to play anybody any better than this, for sure. And this weekend we’re playing the No. 1 team in the country in Faulkner University and we’re going to play Georgia Gwinnett in a couple of weeks, so it kind of gets you ready for that.”
Biloxi Shuckers RHP Adrian Houser said, “Just getting back out here, you know? Just getting away from all of the hectic stuff of spring training and getting back out here with the guys we’ve got on the team and just getting after it. Really enjoying all of this nice weather and especially the ocean.”
Proceeds from tonight’s game are going towards William Carey tornado relief efforts from January 2017. The Shuckers lead off their regular season on Thursday with a five game road swing versus the Montgomery Biscuits.
