The Miners Are Back!

Sussex County, NJ – While minor and independent professional baseball leagues have been canceled across the country this summer, professional-caliber baseball will return to Sussex County at the Skylands Stadium on July 23rd as part of the 6-team, All- American Baseball Challenge.

 The 32-game schedule will feature the Sussex County Miners and Skylands Cardinals playing at Skylands Stadium in Augusta, NJ; Rockland Boulders (not affiliated with the New York Boulders) and New York Brave Palisades Credit Union Park, and the New Jersey Jackals and the Jersey Wise Guys will play at Yogi Berra Stadium in Montclair, NJ. All games will be held on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 

This all-star caliber, recreation league will feature top-level talent from both minor league and college baseball as part of the outdoor family fun series at Skylands Stadium. “We’re excited to offer this level of baseball to our local communities, in the safety of outdoor venues in a socially distanced atmosphere, at a time when all minor league seasons have been cancelled,” stated Al Dorso, Chairman of the Board.   Players from the 2019 Jackals, Miners and Boulders are expected to participate. We’re confident our fans will enjoy the return of baseball to our great stadiums, and we’re happy to give our players this opportunity to play.
