Skylands Stadium LLC Management purchased Skylands Park in 2013, including the 4,200-seat ballpark, a 16,000-square foot all-purpose building and the surrounding 28 acres. The Stadium has upgraded all concessions, restroom facilities and seating areas, as well as the playing field, clubhouse and locker rooms. A new 5,000-square foot pavilion has been erected down the first base line. An 18,000-square foot exhibit hall will be completed this winter, and an in-house catering facility will be open for business by Spring, 2015.
The Stadium will host a new professional baseball team, The Sussex County Miners, which will begin play on Memorial Day, May 25. Led by General Manager Dave Chase, a nationally known baseball executive who brings over thirty-five years of experience to the role, the Miners are members of the Can-Am Association of Professional Baseball. They will play fifty-five home games in Augusta this summer. You can view their schedule here.

You people are really idiots. Why would you post questions here about
hours of operation and batting cages? How about calling the facility for
information? You've all been asking the same question since 2008! I hope
you havent been waiting for a response for 3 years.

Your batting cages are in need of major repair. Sometimes no ball is
pitched. Most pitches are nowhere near strikes and the balls are so dirty
you can hardy see them.
