The Biloxi Shuckers are the Double-A affiliate of Major League Baseball's Milwaukee Brewers. The team's relocation to Biloxi, Miss. brought professional baseball back to Biloxi for the first time in nearly a century. While the Shuckers are the product of multiple relocation efforts, they spent the 20 seasons before the transition to Biloxi in Huntsville, Ala. Known as the Huntsville Stars, the franchise experienced considerable success. Between 1985 and 1998, the team was the Double-A squad for the Oakland Athletics and made the postseason eight times, including two Southern League Championships. The Brewers became the parent organization for the beginning of the 1999 season and have run the organization since. Under the Brewers' umbrella, the Stars made another six playoff trips and won one additional championship. The transition to Biloxi for the 2015 season saw continued success as the team made another playoff run. Coming into the 2020 season, the Shuckers have lost the league championship series each of the last two seasons. Get your tickets to see the Biloxi Shuckers at StubHub today.

Coach Guerrero has a record of 315-258 during his time as Biloxi's skipper. The 2020 season will be Coach Guerrero's 23rd season overall as a manager.
Are the Biloxi Shuckers part of any rivalries?
The Biloxi Shuckers make up one-third of the Seafood Buffet Rivalry. The Shuckers, the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp and the Pensacola Blue Wahoos are all Southern League teams named after local seafood fare. 2019 was the first year of the season-long round-robin style rivalry in which the team with the most wins against the other two gets one pound of seafood from both other squads. The Shuckers edged the Blue Wahoos by one game to win the inaugural Seafood Buffet Rivalry last season.
Are there any former Biloxi Shuckers plays in Major League Baseball?
Several of the players who were part of the Milwaukee Brewers 2018 National League Divisional Series squad were products of Biloxi baseball. Pitchers Josh Hader, Brandon Woodruff and Freddy Peralta all played for the Shuckers on their way to the Brewers' Big League roster. All 10 Brewers on that playoff team spent time in Biloxi. Other notable names who spent a portion of their career in Biloxi include Wade Miley, Stephen Vogt, Will Middlebrooks and Orlando Arcia.
Where do the Biloxi Shuckers play their home games?
MGM Park is the home of the Biloxi Shuckers. The stadium's opening in 2015 coincided with the arrival of the Shuckers from Huntsville. While the stadium does offer stereotypical ballpark foods, there are also regional choices that are an obvious nod to the seafood that is such a part of the local culture. Jambalaya, muffaletta and garlic butter oysters can all be bought at the park. While this Minor League Park doesn't offer any seating beyond the outfield walls, there are only about 15 rows that reach from foul pole to foul pole, meaning that all of the 6,076 seats are within a reasonable sightline of the field.
