MGM Park, the soon to be home of the Biloxi Shuckers, appears to be near completed. With most of the stadium structure in place and the field taking shape it won't be long until the Shuckers will play their first game in their new home stadium.
According to an article from Ballpark Digest the tentative opening of the park is scheduled for June 6th. Tickets went on sale, yesterday (May 13th) at 10am, for the first home game and the remaining games of the Shuckers schedule.
Eleven years in the making June 6th could be a premature date considering the construction deadline is August 4th. Yates, the company handling the construction is moving at very fast pace with multiple things going on at one time, according to Fox Carolina. They also state that the city of Biloxi could be facing fines of $150,000 for missing home games, although that number is still in negotiations.
From our friends over at GulfLive.com ticket prices range from $11 - Reserved Level to $28 - Club Level.
