Glacier Pilots historic 2001 season remembered in new documentary seriesKTVA Channel 11 Sports 1/04/16 by Dave Leval
ANCHORAGE – In 2001, Anchorage’s Glacier Pilots baseball team provided fans with a season to remember.
The team not only won the Alaska Baseball League title that year, but also the national championship in Wichita, KS. Francis played on that winning team and remembers that incredible year.
“I wanted to to go away somewhere to play summer baseball, the opportunity came up to go to Anchorage, [which] seemed like a good opportunity. [It] turned out good for me,” said Francis.
Following that season, he was drafted by Colorado in the first round of the 2002 Major League draft.
The story of that magical season is featured in the new online documentary, “In Flight Pilots,” produced by Anchorage native Robert Barr.
“I couldn’t understand why the national media was ignoring all the great baseball stories that happened in Alaska, all the great college players that played,” Barr said.

Capturing the Boys of Summer
True North Magazine - UAA 2016 by Nolin Ainsworth
He can still recount the conversation nearly two decades later. As he sat in the bleachers of Anchorage’s Mulcahy Stadium one summer with his father, Robert Barr complained about the absence of any major media coverage for the Alaska Baseball League. After all, this was an amateur league that saw the likes of Barry Bonds, Randy Johnson, and Dave Winfield take up its far-north diamonds before the joining the Big League. That’s when his father reminded him of his degree in broadcast journalism.
“It was his way of telling me, ‘Why don’t you do it? Why are you waiting for someone else to tell the story if you feel that passionately about it? ” Barr said.
And so he did. The Anchorage native and longtime fan of the Anchorage Glacier Pilots devoted a summer following around the 2001 team. The Anchorage club is one of six teams spread between Fairbanks and Kenai in the league originally founded in 1974. Little did Barr know, the players he was rubbing shoulders with in June would be national champions a little over two months later.
“What ended up happening that summer just blew me away,” Barr said. “It was lightning in a bottle.”
Barr will finally release a documentary series titled, “In Flight: Pilots!” on May 31 that chronicles the season and will be released on his YouTube Channel.
