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 14U and 12U teams the opportunity to travel out of state. In the recent past 12U and 14U teams have traveled to Washington State during Labor Day weekend. Midnight Suns travel teams have also competed in California, Arizona and even Hawaii in past years. We are always looking for fun travel opportunities that offer our players a chance to compete against other teams across the country.
The Midnight Suns Baseball Club had two major accomplishments in 2017. The 14U travel team earned 1st place in the Silver Division at the 10th Annual Tom Creaser Memorial Day Tournament in Lacey, Washington. Later in the summer the 2017 Juneau Post 25 American Legion baseball team took first place in the regular season with a record of 17-1. That first place ranking earned the #1 seed in the Alaska State Tournament in Anchorage for the second year in a row. After four straight 3rd place finishes Juneau American Legion won the state championship in 2017 and traveled on to Missoula, Montana for the Northwest Regionals. Juneau lost to the host Missoula team and then was knocked out of the tournament in a close game, 3-1 by the Lewiston, Idaho team that traveled on the American Legion World Series. https://www.alaskalegion.com/news/mccurleys-gem-cant-save-midnight-suns-elimination. This was Juneau Post 25's first State Championship since 1984. The final record for the season was 27-5.
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.
