Catching Up With The Homeless Shuckers

SWXRightNow.com -- Imagine if the Spokane Indians couldn't play at beautiful Avista Stadium, rated one of the best Minor League Baseball ballparks in all of America, during the 2015 season.

The Indians' season begins on June 18th with Opening Night live on SWX. But what if they had to play at least the first third of their games on the road this season? That wouldn't please too many season ticket holders.

That's exactly what the Biloxi Shuckers are having to do, at least until their $36 million stadium is finished hopefully sometime later this season. The Milwaukee Brewers Double-A affiliate moved from Huntsville, Ala. to Mississippi's Gulf Coast this season with the new stadium deal as the main allure, but construction delays prevented the Shuckers from hosting their April 20th home opener earlier this year.

The new expected opening date is expected to be sometime in early June.

ESPN caught up with the Shuckers on game 12 of their at least 55-game road trip to see how they're holding up in their endless hotel stops. Watch the full feature below courtesy of ESPN.
