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 opened on June 6, 2015 as the Shuckers played the Mobile BayBears, winning by a score of 5-4. The ballpark has 5,000 fixed seats with room for an additional 800-1,000 fans in berm seating.The Shuckers were founded in 1978 as the Nashville Sounds. The team relocated to Alabama and played as the Huntsville Stars from 1985 through 2014.HistoryGround for the ballpark was broken on January 23, 2014, before the Biloxi City Council approved the project.On May 9, 2014, the Biloxi City Council voted unanimously, without public discussion, to cancel its project management contract with Yates Construction. Because of this, the expected completion date of the ballpark was pushed from April 2015 to May 17, 2015. The city had decided to "separately bid each phase" of construction "rather than drafting specifications for the entire project", but the council instead would "bid the entire project". Yates Construction was awarded the contract by a 5-2 vote by the Biloxi City Council on July 22, 2014.FeaturesThe 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.
