New video clip! – MLB players talk about the Midnight Sun Game
With the Summer Solstice upon us, that can only mean one thing in Fairbanks, AK, and that’s the annual Midnight Sun Game. Called by The Sporting News “One of the Top 10 must-see events for the true baseball fan”, the MSG has been played for over 100 years. Starting at 10:30pm with no artificial lights needed, the exhibition game has been hosted by the Alaska Goldpanners of Fairbanks since the early 60′s. They usually play a traveling team from outside the state, but the game is the unofficial kick-off to the Alaska Baseball League season. All this is covered in-depth in our new documentary release Touching the Game, Alaska. Many past and present MLB players have played in the Midnight Sun Game, see what some of them have to say about it here.
