Bob Lutz: NBC’s Alaska tradition being grounded
Only two of those championships have come in the past 16 years, though, as the commitment from Alaska has waned.
But just try telling that to Todd Dennis, the general manager of the Fairbanks (Alaska) Goldpanners, whose six titles are the most in World Series history, though the Panners haven’t played here consistently since the mid-1980s.
Dennis, the son of Fairbanks founding father Don Dennis, is adamant that the Goldpanners will be back. Next year, if at all possible.
