The Alaska Baseball League (ABL) is an amateur collegiate summer baseball league, with six teams located in five Alaskan cities. Players in the league must have attended one year of college and must have one year of NCAA eligibility remaining. The Midnight Sun Game, held at Growden Memorial Park in Fairbanks on the longest day of each year, is one of the highlights of the Alaska Baseball League season. In the past, the ABL has sent its top teams to compete at the National Baseball Congress (NBC) World Series, where the league’s representatives have won multiple championships.

Jeremy Kennedy, head baseball coach said, “I am very proud of Adam, he deserves every accolade that he receives. Adam has worked very hard to get where he is.  I am looking forward to see him lead our team in his senior year.”

Adam Humes is the son of Aaron & Linda Humes, from Plano, Texas.  Humes is a graduate of Plano East Senior High School where he played 2nd Team All District in 2008.
