Bates/Parker: This Week in Baseball History podcast: The Midnight Sun Game

From SABR members Mike Bates and Bill Parker at This Week in Baseball History podcast on June 20, 2018, with SABR member Henry Cole:

For more than a century in Fairbanks, Alaska, every solstice has revolved around baseball. The Midnight Sun Game is an annual tradition that has drawn some of the greatest ballplayers of the modern era. Even the great Barry Bonds, who was deemed not good enough to play in the game in 1983. Alaska native Henry Cole (@Phrozen_) takes us through the history and rituals of the game, and of baseball in general above the 51st parallel. Also, happy birthday to Hensley Meulens!
