River City Rascals to End Franchise in O'Fallon, MO

Aug 12, 2019

One of the rivals of the Southern Illinois Miners is apparently leaving the Frontier League.

After more than two decades of play, the company that operates the River City Rascals announced Monday it has informed the city of O'Fallon, Missouri the team is ending its 21-year run. A reason for the decision was not disclosed.

Mayor Bill Hennessy calls the decision disappointing, but says the city already is in contact with other teams about playing at CarShield Field.
