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


The Canadian national softball team will play a 25-game National Pro Fastpitch League schedule at Rent One Park in Marion next summer.

The Canadian team says the strong competition in the league will prepare it for the upcoming 2019 Olympic qualifiers and the 2020 Olympic Games.
