Watch Local Baseball Teams in Action

Catch the stars of tomorrow’s MLB teams today with Southern League Baseball. Mississippi is home to two popular AA ball clubs — the Mississippi Braves and the Biloxi Shuckers. The Mississippi Braves are the AA affiliate to the Atlanta Braves and play at Trustmark Park in Pearl, which is located just outside the capital city of Jackson. Some notable MLB stars that have graced the diamond for the M-Braves include Brian McCann, Jeff Francoeur, and Jason Heyward.

If you take a trip to Biloxi on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, be sure to visit MGM Park for an exciting Shuckers game. An affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, the Biloxi Shuckers will have you rooting for the home team, no matter where you’re from. You may even be able to say you saw a future legend play during your trip to Biloxi.

Visit the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame and Museum

If you’re a sports enthusiast, the Mississippi Sports History Hall of Fame and Museum should be on your list of attractions to visit. Located in Jackson, the museum offers an array of sports-related, interactive exhibits for seasoned and rookie sports fans to celebrate great moments and athletes in sports history. Touchscreen kiosks allow visitors to access archival footage, achievement data, biographical information, and more than 500 interviews with famous Mississippi athletes like Jerry Rice, Brett Favre, Archie Manning, Ralph Boston, and Dizzy Dean.

Play on Our Beautifully Groomed Golf Courses

If a round of golf is more your style, check out one of Mississippi’s lush and beautifully manicured golf courses. The Magnolia State is home to thousands of acres of meticulously groomed greens, fairways, and tee boxes that are cared for daily, helping ensure your drives, chips, and putts are your best ones yet.

However, if you only have time for one round, head to The Bridges Golf Club at Hollywood Casino Gulf Coast. This Arnold Palmer signature course is named for the more than 20 bridges located on the course’s 600 acres of moss-draped live oaks, stately pines, magnolias, and sweeping vistas of saltwater marsh. The 6,900-yard, par 72 course is ranked among the Top 40 casino courses in the country and Top 10 courses in the state. Reserve your tee time and grab your clubs to experience all this golf course in Bay St. Louis has to offer.
