No Goldpanners Baseball
The Alaska Goldpanners have cancelled their upcoming baseball season, including the historic Midnight Sun Game normally held at Growden Park in Fairbanks, on June 21st, starting at 10 PM.
A post announcing the cancellation cites the safety of players, fans and staff in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, saying
it would be impossible to comply with medical recommendations and government policies.
The Goldpanners are offering full refunds of pre-purchased tickets.
It will be the first summer without Goldpanner baseball since 1960.
The Midnight Sun Game, normally played on the Summer Solstice, is a much older Fairbanks tradition, dating back to 1906.
