8/1/6: Named 2006 Alaska Goldpanners Most Valuable Pitcher
7/12/6: Sean Timmons sets strikeout record in Panners win "Timmons caught Fire left fielder Steve Shaver looking at a pitch on the outside part of the plate at Growden Memorial Park to tally his 274th career strikeout, passing Brent Strom on the all-time list. Ten years to do it, said Timmons who first toed the rubber for the Panners in 1994 and is pitching in his 10th season. Hey, its nice. It wasnt pretty, but hey I got it done. I dont gotta worry about it anymore.
6/26/6: Timmons, Mier combine to pace Goldpanners win - "Sean Timmons, the winningest pitcher in Goldpanners history, pitched seven solid innings to add another victory to his laurels and catcher Jessie Mier belted a three-run homer that snapped a 3-3 tie as the Goldpanners downed the Anchorage Bucs 10-3 before an appreciative gathering at Growden Memorial Park. Cheff (Goldpanner manager Ed Cheff) made it a point to say that we needed to do things differently, Mier said of the Goldpanners offensive turnaround. He just re-emphasized in a strong way the things that needed to be done in order for us to have success, said Mier, who plays under Cheffs direction at NAIA champion Lewis-Clark State in Idaho. The main thing was that we needed to be more selective instead of chasing pitches.
6/16/6: Byrns and Dunn propel Panners - "The 29-year-old right-hander from Fairbanks began his 10th season with the Goldpanners by allowing a run, scattering six hits, striking out six and giving up a walk over six innings. He was just amazing,' said Cheff. He just had special command of his slider; hes always had that since hes been pitching.'
6/24/5: The boys of summer solstice - David Hoeckstra, Chicago Sun Times "The Goldpanners beat Omaha 3-1 in the 100th Anniversary game. Fairbanks native Sean Timmons was the winning pitcher. He is now the winningest pitcher (3-0) in the history of the Midnight Sun game. Immediately after the game, his No. 33 jersey was shipped to the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y. "

6/21/6: Centennial Midnight Sun Game
JULY 17, 2004 - "It wasn't a pretty thing," said Timmons of the outing in which he broke the record he'd shared since July 6- following a 12-3 win against the Anchorage Bucs -with George "Muggs" Mies the '60's-era Panners pitcher-first baseman, who played seven consecutive seasons for the club. "But I got it done," Timmons added. "And It's a good feeling."
JUNE 26, 2004 vs AIA "I keep my focus on the pitching," said Timmons, when asked if he was affected by the big change in atmosphere at Growden Park between the two starts. "I just go out there and throw strikes. I still have a job to do."
JUNE 21, 2004 - "Sean Timmons had only one regret after Monday night's Midnight Sun Game- and it wasn't a pitch that got away or one he wished he hadn't thrown. "I wish I had more time to speak to George," said Timmons, the Midnight Sun game starter and winning pitcher in the Panners 9-1 win over the Peninsula Oilers..

8/6: Fairbanks claims key win "There was no particular pitch working," Timmons said. "My location was pretty good tonight. Getting the lead early was nice.

8/6: Title defense begins "Alaska Baseball League Player of the Year Sean Timmons was backed by an explosive offense as the Alaska Goldpanners opened defense of their National Baseball"

8/1: Named ABL Player of the Year "Timmons first made a brief appearance with the Panners in the 1994 season. After graduating from Armstrong College in Georgia, he returned in 1998 and has steadily earned more playing time each season. Last year, he was the most valuable starting pitcher for the Panners and this year, he topped that by being named the league's best player."
7/18: Timmons shuts down Bucs' bats - "I know they were a little sluggish getting off the bus but heck they didn't get home until 4 o'clock this morning," Timmons said of his teammates. "All I ask every time I go out there is just to get me one or two."

9/1: Named 2002 Goldpanners Most Valuable Player
6/22: Midnight sun doesn't fail to make a showing - Richard Larson "Phil Blackwell, a pitcher on the Panners 1962-65 teams, threw out the first pitch, exactly 40 years after being the starting pitcher in the 1962 Midnight Sun Game... these guys have beautiful uniforms, while we had nice baggy ones. But the game was the same. We had 3 or 4,000 fans back then, too, and they were every bit as raucous as they are right now," Blackwell said as a roar came from the group of 80 thundering students from Marshall, Mich., packed into the far left-field stands.
6/22: A Boyhood Dream Comes True for Sean Timmons "the Alaska Goldpanners defeated the Ukiah Victory Dons 2-1 on a game-winning RBI single from Chad Corona in the bottom of the ninth inning. "I'm going to Alaskaland, baby!" joked Corona with his teammates during a jubilant celebration in front of the Panners' bench after Ryan Haag crossed the dish for the winning run.|
6/16: Waves beat Panners "This is a good fielding team and a good hitting team, and once we get everybody here it will be a strong pitching team, too," Timmons said. "I think it is good to get this out of the way now and hopefully this will help us get better for the league season. We still want to win, but you would rather lose now than in league." With new players arriving daily and only a couple of returning players from last season, Timmons said he was comfortable on the field, but still getting to know everybody in the dugout. "It's not really difficult (playing). My job is just to go out there and throw strikes," Timmons said. "Learning the guys' names is the hardest part. My first baseman and shortstop I get confused."
