Welcome to FairbanksBaseball.com!
This website is designed to celebrate 113 years of baseball in the Alaskan Interior.
The first season of organized baseball on record is 1905. No doubt, impromptu games were held before that year as well.
The breakthrough year for Fairbanks and the sport of baseball in Alaska was 1906. It was on June 21st of that year that the very first midnight sun baseball game was held.
History records that it was this very game that saved Fairbanks from being abandoned in the wake of a devastating fire.
Materials related to the first season, the first midnight sun game, and all subsequent seasons will be added regularly.
