Alaska Midnight Sun Game & Pacific Northwest Baseball Tour

A Baseball Bonanza Under the Solstice Sun
& The Pac NW Summer Baseball Paradise

June 2025 (Specific Dates TBA)

If you were to poll baseball fanatics and “ballpark chasers” on what is on their Baseball Bucket List, the Midnight Sun Game in Fairbanks, Alaska, would no doubt be at the top for many. 

This game is played annually on the summer solstice, capping off a city-wide festival in Fairbanks to celebrate the longest day of the year. It will be the only night game you ever attend during which the stadium lights are never turned on, because the sun never sets on the solstice at latititudes this high, allowing for a “day game” with a 10:00 PM first pitch! 

For more on the fascinating experience of the Midnight Sun Game, check out this article on MLB.com and listen to this Travel for Sports Podcast episode. For an idea of what to expect on the tour, listen to this recap podcast from tour hosts Anna and Shane and check out our 2023 Pacific Northwest and Alaska Midnight Sun Game Recap and Photo Log.

The Pacific Northwest and Alaska in the summertime is something that everyone should experience.  Therefore, baseball in the region in the summertime is as good as it gets!

But don’t stop there, make it a truly epic Pacific Northwest baseball tour by combining the Midnight Sun Game with more games in the greater Seattle area!

Washington state is an underrated baseball destination, and we’ll be there the perfect time of year – when the rest of the country is hot and Washington is just right! Add in the legendary Alaska Midnight Sun Game, and you have the makings of an unforgettable baseball road trip.

We will see a combination of major, minor, and independent leagues that will make you an expert on the local baseball scene in what will become your favorite corner of the United States.
