About Last Night: Biloxi Shuckers, July 30, 2015

This season, when I’m on the road, I’ll be writing an on-the-spot blog post about each Minor League ballpark that I visit. Then, upon my return home, I’ll provide the multifaceted blog coverage that you have come to know and, perhaps, even love. Let’s get to it, lest it get to us!

July 30, 2015: MGM Park, home of the Biloxi Shuckers 

Opponent: Jackson Generals, 7:10 p.m. game time.

This was my second night in Biloxi, so I’m going to vary the “About Last Night” template a bit. Here, then, is a Vine depicting my short walk to MGM Park.

And here was the scene, shortly after I arrived.

To pass the time, Shuckers broadcaster Chris Harris interviewed me on the air. This was fun.

But what is life if not a constant succumbing to the inevitable? The game was called — doubleheader Friday, Shuckers fans, the first in MGM Park history — and there was nothing left for me to do but (kinda sorta) make a joke.

For far more from my visit to Biloxi, check out this MiLB.com piece.
