THE PLATES MILE IS BACK! The Plates have partnered with YellowJacket Racing and Fleet Feet Rochester to bring runners and plate aficionados together for the 2nd annual Plates Mile at Frontier Field on Thursday, June 27. Gates will open at 6 pm with the race beginning at 7 pm. Unlike last season, this year's race is not being held on a game day.
