Coming June 21, 2017. Celebrate the Summer Solstice! Yes, today is the longest day of the year, marking the start of summer in the northern hemisphere, and if you like baseball, then you need to head to Fairbanks, Alaska for the Midnight Sun Game. Located 150 miles south of the Arctic Circle, the sun is just beginning to set in the North as the game gets under way around 10pm, and plays through until as late as 2am, just as the sun begins to rise again – also in the North. Since its beginnings in 1906, artificial lighting has never been used and only once in history has the game been delayed because of darkness. The home team, the Alaska Goldpanners of Fairbanks, will be hosting the San Diego Waves for this year’s game. The Panners roster is comprised of collegiate players from across the country, and the team’s alumni boasts baseball greats including Tom Seaver, Dave Winfield and Barry Bonds. Have a ball on the longest day of the year at the “high noon at midnight” baseball game – the Midnight Sun Game!
