2020 will see the 115th playing of the Midnight Sun Baseball Game, when home team Alaska Goldpanners of Fairbanks take on the Everett Merchants. First pitch is scheduled for 10:00 pm, and gates open at 8:00 pm. This Fairbanks' baseball tradition began in 1906 as a bar bet between the Eagle's Club and the California Bar, led by "Father of the Midnight Sun Game," Eddie Stroecker. Though the game is played through the hour of midnight, artificial lights are never used — and have never been used in the history of the event. The Goldpanners have hosted the game since 1960.
