Just got my tickets to see the Sugar Rebs play Nicholls State at MGM Park on Tuesday, March 14th. I think I’m more excited than the kids for Ole Miss baseball in Biloxi.
This year, Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Southern Miss each play games in Biloxi during the month of March and the Biloxi Shuckers start the season in April. In May, MGM Park hosts the 2017 Conference USA Baseball Tournament.If you’ve never been to MGM Park, you’re missing out. It’s a great venue for a baseball game and a wonderful perk for those of us living on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
I go to about a 1/2 dozen Shuckers games each year and we always have a fun time. MGM Park is brand new, super clean, with a nice selection of food and drink for fans of all ages at decent prices. We love to sit on the front row on the first or third base line – that way we get in on all the action.
When going to games at MGM Park, the easiest thing to do is to park for free in the parking garage at the Beau Rivage and then walk across the street to the game.
After the game, drop the kids off at the huge arcade in the Beau and then make a beeline for the tables. Bet a quick $22 inside, take down your first two numbers that hit and continue to make bank until the shooter craps out. Hopefully, you’ve made back enough to pay for the day and the kids will never know you were gone!
3/5/17 UPDATE – I just got word that Ticketfly has a promo code for Ole Miss tickets in special sections of MGM Park. I bought my tickets last week before I found out about the discount, so I have not tried the code out to see if it works. The coupon code is OM2017 and – if it works – when you speak of me, speak kindly.
