The Mat-Su Sports Page
While no professional teams are based in Alaska, the Mat-Su Valley does not have a shortage of options for sports fans. Don't miss an inning of Mat-Su Miners baseball, a collegiate summer team that plays in the Alaska Baseball League. Games are at Hermon Brothers Field on the Alaska State Fairgrounds, and with sweeping views of the Chugach Mountains, there is not a more picturesque ballpark in the country. Several Major League Baseball players got their start in the Alaska Baseball League.
Golfers are treated to some of the most picturesque courses in the country. Grab your clubs and tee off under the Midnight Sun at one of two Valley courses, which feature views of mountains, glaciers and rivers. There's also a race track and drag strip in the Palmer area for race car enthusiasts. Throughout the summer, there are 5K races nearly every weekend in various communities within the Mat-Su Valley.
