Shuckers host Education Day at MGM Park for students

School kids spent the day watching baseball at MGM Park, but they were not playing hooky.

The Biloxi Shuckers hosted Education Day as they battled out on the diamond against the Mississippi Braves.

The Mississippi Aquarium, Mississippi Forestry Commission, and Merit Health Biloxi set up shop along the concourse for students to learn a little more about sea creatures, what goes on in our forest, and how to conduct CPR on babies and adults.

Middle school student Cordaro Londino discovered some new CPR techniques at today’s game. “Well, I learned that for a baby, you gotta do it evenly like with two fingers and you gotta do it easily. You can’t go all the way down and for a human all you gotta do is use like right here and go like that.”

The Shuckers lost today’s game 4-2 against the Mississippi Braves. The same two teams meet tomorrow at MGM Park.
