ABOUT THE MIDNIGHT SUNS BASEBALL CLUB
The Midnight Suns Baseball Club is a non-profit organization that provides opportunities for our youth in Juneau to build character and develop life skills while learning how to play America’s favorite past time - baseball. We focus on developing fundamental baseball skills, the importance of teamwork, and teach them how dedication, commitment and a strong work ethic can help them accomplish any goals they set for themselves, both on and off the field.
The Midnight Suns Baseball Club offers a winter skills development program for players from age 8-18. The program is from October through March leading right up to the Gastineau Channel Little League and high school baseball seasons. MSBC offers practices and clinics conducted by guest coaches with college, minor league and major league baseball experience.
MSBC also offers to those selected for the 18U, 14U and 12U teams the opportunity to travel out of state. In the past, the 18U team has traveled to California and Arizona in the fall and spring while the 14U team has traveled to Arizona during Spring Break and the 12U team has traveled to Washington State during Labor Day weekend.
The Midnight Suns Baseball Club had two major accomplishments in 2015. The 12U travel team placed 3rd out of 14 teams at the 8th Annual Tom Creaser Memorial Tournament in Lacey, Washington. This tournament took place during the last weekend of May. Later in the summer the 2015 Juneau American Legion baseball team competed in the Alaska state tournament in Anchorage and the NWCART tournament in Logan, Utah. For the 3rd straight year Juneau American Legion took 3rd place at state. The NWCART qualification was the second consecutive one for coach Andy Macaulay. We would like to thank Coach Andy, the former MSBC President, for all of his hard work and success! To read more please check out this summary: http://alaskalegion.com/news.php?nid=492.
MSBC looks to continue the great Juneau American Legion tradition by providing our youth opportunities to play competitive baseball during the summer. For more information about the Post 25 team, please visit the web site at: www.post25baseball.org.
The Midnight Suns Baseball Club is funded through a variety of sources that includes pull-tab gaming revenues, player fees, donations, fundraisers and is partially funded by the citizens of the City and Borough of Juneau through sales tax revenues.
