The Alaska Goldpanners will be hosting the California Running Birds during the 103rd Midnight Sun Game. Big news from this year’s game includes the official launch of the Goldpanners Alumni, and the addition of Bill “Spaceman” Lee as starting pitcher. This game has an amazing history, featuring some of baseball’s all-time great players, including Barry Bonds, Tom Seaver and Dave Winfield.
Find out more from the ESPN feature on the game (below) or this more recent story from Yahoo!, then be sure to put the June 21st game on your Fairbanks summer itinerary. It is one of the top ten Ultimate Baseball Experiences, and a Fairbanks Midnight Sun sports tradition.
Come see the fine young players, one of whom may emerge as the next great Major League star, during the Midnight Sun Game at Growden Memorial Park on June 21, 2008! Full details can be found at the Goldpanners homepage.
