        Miners training camp begins May 1, the Frontier League season begins on the road May 12 and the home opener at Skylands Stadium is Tuesday night, May 16. This might be the perfect time to plan a family road trip for later...

     It was getting to be late in the season last year, and the Miners were tangled in a six-team race for three East Division playoff spots. The pitching was there – one of the Frontier League’s best teams on the mound. But, at...
