Buck Rogers resigns as Biloxi Shuckers General Manager

November 13, 2015

BILOXI, MS - Buck Rogers, General Manager of the Biloxi Shuckers has submitted his resignation due to personal reasons.

Rogers, a 19-year Minor League Baseball executive, was named the first General Manager in the history of the Biloxi Baseball Club last spring. Rogers operated the Shuckers through construction of MGM Park, creation of a front office staff and a tremendously successful Inaugural season of Double-A baseball.

"I truly appreciate the opportunity and trust from the ownership group to be a part of the launch of the franchise at MGM Park," stated Rogers. "The experience has been amazing and I can't thank them enough for allowing me to be a part of it. The staff and my successor will take the operation to new levels and the community will have something to be proud of for years to come."

"Buck did an outstanding job under trying circumstances this year," said team President Ken Young. "His passion and commitment were contagious and we wish him nothing but the best."

The Biloxi Shuckers will begin searching for a new General Manager immediately. Chris Birch, Director of Sales, will serve as interim General Manager until a replacement for Rogers is hired.
