Alaskan baseball team holds 110th annual Midnight Sun Game

Monday June 22nd, 2015

The Fairbanks Goldpanners of the amateur Alaskan League played the 110th annual Midnight Sun Game on Sunday, the longest day of the year, in which the sun barely even sets in the town.

The game started at 10:30 p.m. and an ESPN report from 2005 states that no local recalls Growden Park's lights ever needing to be turned on, despite the sun technically setting at 12:48 a.m. on this year's summer solstice.

The visuals of the game are amazing, and the Goldpanners managed to pull out a come from behind win with a 7–4 victory over the Seattle Studs.
