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 also hosts a winter clinic, including pitching, fielding and hitting, that is 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. MSBC's biggest accomplishment in 2013 was bringing back American Legion Baseball to Juneau after a 12 year absence. The Juneau Post 25 team finished in 2nd place out of 12 teams with an impressive 22-9 record and placed 3rd in the Alaska Legion state tournament. MSBC looks to continue this great Juneau tradition by providing our youth opportunities to play competitive baseball during the summer. For more information about the Post 25 team, go to 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.
