C-USA Baseball Tournament returns to MGM Park

By Clip Syndicate
Post-season baseball returns to Biloxi with the 2018 Conference USA Tournament beginning Wednesday at MGM Park. The heavily favored Southern Miss Golden Eagles fell to Rice in the championship game last year. The Eagles just clenched the regular season conference title and will be looking to take back the trophy. Overtime Sports brought the tournament to the Coast. They tell News 25 that in the past an average of 16,000 people attended the tournament in Hattiesburg. Last year, MGM Park saw 21,000 fans. Tim Bennett with Overtime Sports said, “This is good for the whole community, the whole coast. When we put this whole deal together, the governor and I talked about bringing in C-USA; that was part of the deal. The city certainly sees the benefit because of the service charge on the tickets, the increased tax revenue from food purchases and heads in beds. At any given time, just with the teams alone, we have 160-200 room nights just with the baseball teams coming in, but having the tournament here in this park, the national television coverage that we have. Last year, over 48 million people got to see Biloxi, some for the very first time.” Tickets are available online at Ticketfly.com or onsite at MGM Park’s south entrance box office.
