The Glacier Pilots, a team of the Alaska Baseball League which draws top college players from colleges all over the U. S., plays at Mulcahy Stadium. We usually don't visit college level teams, but made an exception since there is no affiliated or independent baseball in Alaska. We had taken a cruise and land tour of Alaska that finished in Anchorage. We were afraid that our train to Anchorage would not arrive in time to go to the game. Jim didn't even wait to check into the hotel, but quickly hailed a taxi and went to the ballpark. He arrived at the bottom of the 5th inning. Being that it was June 16th and the sunset time was 11:41 pm there was still enough light to take pictures. He made contact with Kristen Dyson, the team office manager and talked with her about the team. This is the 40th year for the Glacier Pilots. The Pilots were playing the Athletes in Action Fire and won 6-3. The box score was Fire R-3, H-5, E-2 and the Pilots R-6, H-11, E-0. As this was the first ballfield visited this year Jim forgot to get the field dimensions. Interesting broadcast booth on top of the grandstand. The team was celebrating St. Patrick's Day in June. Green bowler hats were passed out to the fans and the team wore green caps with a shamrock logo. Piper, a moose, is the mascot, but wasn't to be seen. Sumo wrestling is a between inning activity. Jim would like to thank Jon Dyson, Kristen's son, the team General Manager for the game used baseball. This ball is unique in that it has advertising for Carl's Jr. on it. General Managers do everything at lower levels of baseball, even buying a raffle tickets as Jon did. After the game if the Glacier Pilots win they put up a "W" flag. He would like to thank Teresa, the food concessionaire manager, for providing a list of the food costs. Best hot dog for the price Jim's ever had. A thank you to Kristen's husband for bringing Jim back to the hotel.
