Greg Dobbs (00)

HR in first MLB at-bat  "I was thinking, 'Don't trip,' just get to home plate"

Catcher Miguel Olivo, the last AL player to hit a home run in his first MLB at-bat, said he had a feeling Greg Dobbs would do the same thing in the ninth inning of Wednesday night's game against the Indians.  "When the count got to 3-2, I told myself, 'He is going to hit a home run here'," Dobbs hit the fastball from Bob Wickman over the fence in right field, becoming the first Mariners player to hit a home run in his first big league at-bat.

In the 42 years since, ABL teams have collected 16 championships -- including an NBC-best six by the Fairbanks Goldpanners and five by the Anchorage Glacier Pilots. A 10-team, round-robin tournament with the six ABL teams and four Outside teams is proposed for Aug. 2-8, Mattingly said. Every team would be guaranteed six games as opposed to the two-game guarantee in Wichita."

10/3/4: Barry Bonds (83) Boone on Bonds: Something Special "You're a star if you're on base .400," Boone said. "How about .600? You have a great, tremendous eye if you walk 100 times. Let me double that, and add another 25. It's numbers we've never seen. If you start breaking Babe Ruth's numbers, you're doing something pretty special. No one's ever walked the earth that can hit like that man." Bonds will blow away his own major-league record for highest on-base percentage (.582 in 2002). In fact, Bonds will now possess four of the top 11 seasons for OBP — his last four seasons, almost inarguably the best four-year stretch in baseball history."

9/29/4: Stumping for Stroop "The following spring she met Perry Stoop on a blind date. Ten days later he "popped the question" under the midnight sun on Pedro Dome. "He pressed me to give an answer right away," Stoop recalled Judy with a laugh. "He wanted to go to the Midnight Sun baseball game."

9/28/4: North Pole Nicks - www.Alaskan-Legacies.com Exhibit "All the rain water drained to the infield.  The fences were like a half mile out there.  I think they built the mound out of sand.  The had a Little League Backstop." - Dave Forman
9/28/4: Greg Dobbs (00) Not the right time "We feel that he'll be a consistent bat at the major league level. He's got a nice short swing and his bat stays in the strike zone a long time." But for now, his bat is mostly on the bench."

6/24/4: Baseball Under the Midnight Sun - New York Times "There's nothing like it," said Bill Stroecker, 84, a Fairbanks lifer whose father played in the first game in 1906. For Mr. Stroecker, there is an added amenity. He gets to blow his trumpet with a trio of old friends — the Frigid Aires, they call themselves — playing swing music in the embrace of summer light on the infield before the game starts. They profess to love winter here, but in truth, they crave the daylight, never more so than in June, when all of Alaska seems to be solar charged, hopped up on ultraviolet energy. "You enjoy every minute of this," said Mr. Stroecker, who has lived his entire life in Fairbanks, "because from here on out, it goes downhill a little bit every day."
6/24/4: June 24, 2004 vs. AIA - Game Story by Andy Sterns "I was just staying warm and taking a couple of practice swings," said Persichina, on how he passed the timeout. "The crowd was going crazy, but I just try to stay calm and keep my composure when I get in the box, no matter what the situation is."

6/23/4: Solstice of Swing Shines on Alaska - Denver Post "Scanning the stands, I notice a young woman selling beer. She has eyes like a husky and is wearing sandals. The temperature has dropped to the high 30s. I wonder how long I can hold out before sporting my embarrassing hat with the cozy earflaps. The loudspeaker blasts, "Good Day, Sunshine!"

6/21/4: Blake Gill (02 MVP) LSU takes injuries in stride - "It's been a long season. The season has kind of taken a toll on me," LSU shortstop Blake Gill said.

6/20/4: On the Ball: Goldpanners Announcer Does More Than Talk
6/20/4: Panners rally again to win "As happy as Alaska was to rise to the occasion amid high 80-degree weather, San Diego was frustrated about taking a lead early but losing control, and the game, on consecutive nights. One stinging aspect of the defeat for the Waves was they had nearly twice as many hits as the Goldpanners--12-7."
6/20/4: Touches of Alaska at Safeco Ballgames "A lot of guys played baseball in Alaska," Guardado said as the Mariner relief pitchers beat the starting pitchers in a home run derby before Saturday's game. "Alaska was one of my best baseball experiences. Sharon Woods was my host parent and I still keep in touch with her. I had a great time, a great experience." "It was great, the people and the lifestyle," Bob Boone said of his Alaska experience. "We worked all day, played baseball at night, then we'd go fishing."

The slender, seemingly middle-aged spectator stuck out his cap and positioned it to have the ball land snugly in his headgear. The crowd applauded and the public address announcer exclaimed, "Sign him up!" And unlike Sunday's Major League Baseball game in Arlington, Texas, no 4-year-olds were harmed in the snagging of the ball."
6/18/4: Jason Lane (96-97) Lane takes over right field "Initially, Lane didn't know why he kept seeing his name in the lineup night after night, long after Hidalgo had recovered from a neck injury he suffered on June 11 in Milwaukee. On Thursday, everything made sense when the Astros traded Hidalgo to the New York Mets in exchange for David Weathers and announced that Lane is officially the club's everyday right fielder. "

A fielder's first step is often the difference maker between a spectacular stop and a ball that is too hot to handle. Arman Sidhu, the Panners rangy shortstop, gave the crowd at Growden Park a perfect example of why coach Ed Cheff brought him north to help anchor the Goldpanners' middle infield."

6/3/4: Six-team roster runs up the score with top-notch players - Rachel Kvapil, AK This Month "How Alaska became a premier non-professional training ground is no mystery. Pete Christopher, general manager of the Mat-Su Miners, attributes the professional-like atmosphere. The schedules are tough with teams playing for days without a break. Long bus trips are constant as players learn to live out of their suitcase. It’s different than other leagues because all their away games are day trips, he said.     After all, the purpose of this league is to train young players for professional ball, said Terry “Yogi” Cox, interim general manager and assistant coach of the Anchorage Glacier Pilots."
6/3/4: Jimy Williams (64), Jason Lane (96-97) Williams makes all the right moves "
Williams also touched gold with his bench moves. He used Jason Lane to pinch hit against hard-throwing right-hander Francis Beltran in the sixth, a surprise choice considering he had hot-hitting lefty Mike Lamb available. But there were two out and nobody on when Lane hit and it made sense not to spend an RBI magnet like Lamb in that situation. "I know Lane has no home runs, but he has power," Williams explained.

Shaver walked the next batter, who scored moments later on a triple to the left-center field gap. The next Edmonds hitter grounded out to second base, but not before Shaver threw a wild pitch that scored the baserunner from third. The freshman righthander from Lathrop, Alaska, then gave up a base hit, walked a batter and hit another to load the bases before he was lifted for reliever Jon McCaslin (03-04R)."

"Come in, Dearie! Come in!"   It was wartime in Alaska. Eva McGown was on duty. Often the visitors were military wives, newly arrived in Fairbanks, with babies in arms and other tykes tugging at their skirts. They were tired and discouraged. They had no place to stay. Somewhere along their disheartening searches for lodging, sympathetic Fairbanksans had suggested that the women "go see Eva McGown at the Nordale."

Tempers heated up in the fifth inning, when Robinson bowled over catcher Javi Herrera to score from second on Justin Humphries' single. "He got fired up. He was in my face and the umpire told him to back off," Robinson said. "So the tension started to rise there. "Then, after Beau hit the home run, I saw the pitcher look over at me. When I got up into the box, I looked down and the catcher wasn't even in his stance when the (pitcher) started. He threw the ball about four feet behind me, and I just went out there."

The idea behind the game, which begins at 10:30 p.m., is that the lights are never turned on. "There's a car in the parking lot with its lights on," intoned public address announcer Todd Dennis last year, "and lights are not allowed at the Midnight Sun Game." The crowd roared.
