Micro Fantasy is excited to announce that we are partnering with the West Virginia Miners of the Prospect League for the second year in a row! The Miners were the first team in the Prospect League to add Micro Fantasy to their in-game experience for the 2018 season and fans have really enjoyed it. When asked about how Micro Fantasy impacted the West Virginia Miners last season, Jim Holland, the Director of Marketing, Sales & Game Day Operations had this to say:
"Our first season in 2018 with Micro Fantasy was wildly successful. [It] resulted in people staying at the games longer and kept them much more connected with what was happening on the field. It was almost like the fans had their own private pennant race going on among themselves every night to see who was on top of the standings when the game ended."
We are looking forward to creating many more memories and fun experiences with the West Virginia Miners in 2019. The season kicks off at home against the Lafayette Aviators at Linda K. Epling Stadium on May 30th!
On the field, the West Virginia Miners are looking to have a great regular season with their brand-new manager, Mike Syrett, a former Miners player that is considered to be one of the most respected pitchers in franchise history. The Miners have reached the postseason in seven of their nine years in the Prospect League and look to make their mark once again.
