Midnight Sun Baseball Game

The Midnight Sun Baseball Game began more than 100 years ago, inspired by a bet between two local bars. It has become one of Alaska’s most hallowed traditions. In the entire baseball world, no team has a more natural promotion than the Alaska Goldpanners of Fairbanks and the annual Midnight Sun Game. Played on the June 21 summer solstice, with the first pitch at 10:30 p.m. at Growden Memorial Park, the game is played in its entirety without the benefit of artificial lights.
