Shuckers' fans score Denny's Grand Slam

Denny's restaurant chain and the Biloxi Shuckers have teamed up for a special promotion this season.

Anytime the Biloxi Shuckers hit a home run during the second inning this season, every fan in the stadium will win a certificate for a free Denny's Original Grand Slam with two buttermilk pancakes, two eggs, two bacon strips and sausage links. The certificate will be good at breakfast, lunch or dinner, said Sam Wilensky, Biloxi area franchisee.

Beginning with Thursday's opening day, the "Denny's Second Inning Slam" promotion will run at each of the Shuckers' 70 regular-season home games and will be redeemable at any participating Denny's in the Biloxi area through the end of the regular season in August.

The chain has a restaurant at Canal Road in Gulfport and Washington Avenue in Ocean Springs.
