A Baseball Bonanza Under the Solstice Sun
June 19-22, 2023
We are thrilled to partner with Baseball Bucket List to put on this once-in-a-lifetime baseball tour!
Speaking of bucket lists, if you were to poll baseball fanatics and “ballpark chasers” around the United States on what is on their 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!
In addition to this legendary, annual Alaska Goldpanners (summer collegiate team) home game, we will visit nearby Denali National Park, home to Denali (a.k.a. Mt. McKinley), the highest peak in North America, and countless moose and grizzly bears. The natural beauty and wildlife in Denali are unparalled – you may feel like you are inside a nature documentary when taking in the scene.
