MGM Park In Biloxi Mississippi
MGM Park is a minor league baseball park in Biloxi, Mississippi. It is the home of the Double-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, the Biloxi Shuckers of the Southern League. The ballpark has 5,000 fixed seats with roomfor an additional 800-1,000 fans in berm seating.
MGM Park Stadium History
Ground for the ballpark was broken on January 23, 2014. The stadium layout is organized around the concourse level that wraps around the field and includes concessions, a lounge and a team store. The majority of the seating is located below the concourse level with 12 suites situated above the concourse.
The franchise began play in 1978 as the Nashville Sounds, a Southern League expansion team. In 1985, the Evansville Triplets moved to Nashville and adopted the Sounds’ history, effectively elevating that organization to Triple-A and necessitating a new home for the Double-A franchise. As a result, Huntsville leaders quickly constructed Joe W. Davis Stadium and lured the franchise to town.
In January 2014, the team was sold to Baseball Biloxi, under the leadership of Ken Young. The franchise remained based in Huntsville until the end of the 2014 season, when it was officially announced that it would be moving to Biloxi. The 2015 season was the team’s first in Biloxi. The team currently plays at MGM Park, which opened on June 6, 2015.
