  • The Midnight Sun Baseball Classic

    Wasn't sure where this belonged, but since it's basically a prospects game, I thought here was the best place.

    Anyone been? Anyone thinking of going?

    For those that don't know, it's an annual baseball game that takes place in Fairbanks, Alaska every June. Because the stadium's so close to the Arctic Circle, it doesn't get very dark at night, hence the name. They use no artificial lighting, and the game starts late in the evening and ends past midnight. I've always wanted to go, but I doubt with my employment situation that it's in the cards for this year. It's on my bucket list, though, and it's pretty high up. It's been going on for over 100 years, though, so it doesn't sound like they'll stop any time soon, so I guess I have time.

    150 views and no responses? If I can't find anyone who's been to it here, wherever will I? :disbelief:

      Maybe the thread would have been better off in the Amateur section. The Goldpanners are a summer collegiate team. Maybe you could see a video called 'Touching the Game - Alaska', there's also a video about the Cape Cod League, but that wouldn't apply here.

        Haven't been but I'd like to. I've been trying to go to a bunch of baseball places lately and for a while I thought I'd go to this year's game but I'm thinking next year is more likely.

          Wow, I was checking in on some old threads, and had forgotten that I actually started this one. I noticed the link above was dead, so I tried to find a new one. Found this:

          I just assumed (in as much as I thought about it at all) that the 2020 game had been cancelled. It hadn't, and had a great story to go along with it.

          I still really want to make it one of these years. It ain't gonna be 2022 for sure. 2023, maybe? It's on the bucket list, anyway.

          Anyone ever been to one?

            Never been, but think it would be immensely cool.

            I went for morning run once in Edinburgh at about 345am with the Sun bright already. I like being up in the small hours, and think it would be amazing to play/watch at midnight under natural light
