POMONA, N.Y. -- The Rockland Boulders will play the Sussex County Miners on Tuesday, July 26, at 1 p.m., in the Cooperstown Can-Am Classic at Doubleday Field, Cooperstown, N.Y.
"Our first trip to Cooperstown in 2015 was one of the most memorable moments in the history of the Rockland Boulders organization," said Team President, Ken Lehner.
"Doubleday Field is the definition of tradition and we are glad we are starting our own Cooperstown tradition by making a return visit."
The Can-Am League contest picks up on the success of last year's inaugural event, which saw the Boulders host the New Jersey Jackals in the first professional game played in Cooperstown since 2009.
This time around, the Boulders will be the designated road team with Sussex County being the home squad.
"I think any time a baseball team can go to Cooperstown and experience the history of the game and really the heart and soul of the game that's up there, it's a great opportunity," said Dave Chase, general manager of the Sussex County Miners.
"It's a great ballpark, Doubleday Field. It's not the most modern facility in the world, but it's a great venue to play the game of baseball the way it was intended to be played under the sunshine."
All Rockland Boulders corporate partners, current and future season ticket holders will be invited at no additional charge.
A bus will be provided from Provident Bank Park to Cooperstown, leaving promptly at 8 a.m. and arriving at 11 a.m. for the 1 p.m. game.
All fans who attend the game will also receive tickets for the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum while also being invited to a post-game reception with the Boulders.
All other fans can purchase a VIP Package which will include transportation, admission to the Hall, VIP seating at the game, and a post-game reception with the team for a separate fee.
