Norm Jenkins' Walk of Honor - Midnight Sun Game

"Almost 5,000 people were present for the start of the 105th Fairbanks Midnight Sun Baseball Classic at 10:30 p.m. Monday, and more than 1,000 were still there this morning at sunrise, 4-1/2 hours later, after the game -- played without lights -- stretched into the 15th inning at Growden Park. The weather was ideal, and nobody -- not even tourists -- complained to the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner about mosquitoes. See a Newsminer slideshow from the game here. "

105th Midnight Sun Game Winning Pitcher: Simon Kudernatsch

June 24, 25 & 26 - Youth Baseball Clinics

"I was there! the 50/50 was $1200.00.I left after the 12th my friend had to work that morning. At 10.30pm when it started It was packed in there, standing room only. That was a highlight of my vacation up there.  It was fun."

“First Pitch” Winner Announced for

North Haven Communities Day at the Ballpark

“Military Appreciation Day”
North Haven is pleased to announce the winner for throwing out the ceremonial “first pitch” at the North Haven Communities Day at the Ballpark on Sunday, June 20th game (Father’s Day).  Congratulations to CPL Nicholas Mossburger, his wife Christina, daughter Lita and son Tristan.  The Mossburgers are long-time North Haven Residents of our Southern Cross neighborhood.  CPL Mossburger is assigned to 5-1 CAV, B Troop of the 1st SBCT, 25th Infantry Division.

The June 20th game is second in a series of three for the Midnight Sun Baseball Classic against the “Military Heroes of the Diamond”.  Gates open at Growden Memorial Park in Fairbanks at noon.  Pre-game ceremony begins at 1:15 and the first pitch is at 2:00 pm.  North Haven Residents receive FREE general admission to the game and may pick up tickets at their respective community center or by showing their military ID at the gate on game day. 

Join us post-game at Glass Park, just inside the Fort Wainwright main gate for a good ol’ fashioned summer picnic to meet, greet and mingle with the players and coaches of the Alaska Goldpanners and Military Heroes of the Diamond teams.  There will be hot dogs, cold drinks and lots of fun activities for the kids.

This year’s Midnight Sun Baseball Classic Series is against the prestigious Military All-Stars participating in the Heroes of the Diamond “Red, White and Blue Tour”.   The team features active duty, reserve, Veterans, Delayed Entry Program and First Responders as part of the historic tour.  The tour delivers unique patriotic events designed to honor America’s Heroes in a choreographed pre-game program that includes "Passing the Flag" and "Walk of Honor" ceremonies to celebrate American history in a very moving tribute.  Their Mission: To Promote the Awareness of Americans in Support of the Honorable Sacrifices our Armed Forces make at the "Tip of the Spear".

North Haven Communities

Through the Military Housing Privatization Initiative, The U.S. Army formed a 50 year partnership with Actus Lend Lease to finance, develop, build, renovate, maintain, and operate the 1,800 homes on Forts Wainwright and Greely.  The partnership is known as North Haven Communities.  North Haven is dedicated to creating welcoming, safe communities that positively influence the way our Service Members and their Families live.  North Haven is also committed to positively contributing to the local and regional economy by working with small businesses, relying on local resources and hiring local people.  North Haven adheres to best practices in safety, energy-efficient construction, and sustainability.

Wrigley Field caved and installed lights back in 1988, but artificial illumination remains blissfully unnecessary during baseball season in Fairbanks. Only in Alaska."
