We have just come off a very successful West Coast and Arizona trip where we interviewed some of the biggest names to play in the Alaska Baseball League. They don’t come any bigger than MLB Hall of Famers Tom Seaver and Dave Winfield, and they both were nice enough to give us lengthy interviews about their summers in Alaska. We also made the rounds at Spring Training sites in Arizona and talked to current MLB players such as Jered Weaver, Michael Young, Craig Counsell, and Mark Teahen. We are not finished yet though as we are still planning to talk to some more BIG names in the near future. We will be sure to keep you up to date!

There’s Yankees/Red Sox, Michigan/Ohio State and Redskins/Cowboys, but when you talk rivalries in Alaska, you have to start with the Anchorage Glacier Pilots and the Anchorage Bucs. The rivalry hits it’s peak every 4th of July when the two teams play a doubleheader to a packed house at Mulcahy stadium. While filming in 2007, we wanted to make sure we were at this event, and it did not disappoint. As you will see in the video, we even had a little fun in the first game by attaching a microphone to Glacier Pilot 3rd baseman Michael Murphy (Jr.-Maryland) and Pilots coach Chris Jones. The day was capped off by a fireworks display that, although could not take place during the dark of night (remember this is summer in Alaska), was still magnificent and enjoyed by all.
