Take me out to the ballgame

30 06 2010

Every year on the summer solstice (longest day of the year) our Fairbanks Goldpanners play a game that starts and 10:30 and is played entirely without artificial lights.  It’s a pretty neat tradition and this year celebrated the 105th midnight sun game.  This year the panners came through for a 4-3 win in the 15th inning, meaning it ended at 2:59 am right around the official sunrise time.  Mom and I left at quarter to 2, when it was still tied, but we were there for the break in the game for the singing of the Alaska state song at midnight.  Awesome!
Warming up about 10 pm

Play ball!

Midnight!  Look ma, no lights!

Break to sing the Alaska state song!

Me at midnight!
