The pitcher's box was at the North Pole. On August 25th, the nuclear-powered submarine USS Seadragon reached the North Pole and some crew members had the urge to play some ball.

The ship surfaced through the thin ice becoming the third submarine to surface at the pole. Members of the crew laid out a softball diamond with the pitcher's box at the pole where the captain claimed he hit a fly ball at 4:00 pm on Wednesday and it wasn't caught until 4:00 am on Thursday.
