As if pitting two 6-0 football teams wasn't enough, Myrtle Beach's home game against Socastee this week is also the Seahawks' homecoming.
For as many people were at Doug Shaw for Myrtle Beach's 56-55 win over Conway a couple weeks back, Friday's numbers should top it. Myrtle Beach is taking extra precautions to keep the influx of fans a smooth process.
Advanced ticket sales begin today. Entrance is $6.
