#ThrowbackThursday: It was only last week when Eielson took on Fort Wainwright in Major League Baseball’s 24 hours of “Play Ball” for the summer solstice, but it was an epic game. The Icemen, down 11-5 going into the final inning, managed to come back and win the game 12-11! Here are the highlights of the action around the diamond.

It’s #SummerSolstice and that means #Alaska is getting almost 22 hours of sunlight! And one of the most unique things about the solstice in Fairbanks is getting the opportunity to see the “Midnight Sun” baseball game. There is so much sunlight that the game is able to be played without the help of any stadium lights. This year marks the 113th iteration of this baseball classic. This game is just one of the many things that makes being stationed at Eielson AFB such a unique opportunity. (U.S. Air Force Photo by 2d Lt Kitsana Dounglomchan)
