Baseball in the Islands – Stay Connected to Your MLB Home Team

May 18, 2016

Hawaii’s tropical climate provides great weather for athletes, young to the mature, and fans all year long.

One sport in particular, baseball, has deep roots in the islands.

You’ll hear stories from decorated World War II veterans sharing how baseball brought them together.

With Pearl Harbor survivors well into their 90s, their numbers are shrinking.

These Hawaii veterans enjoyed the local Hawaii Islanders team decades ago from 1961 through 1987 in the Honolulu Stadium, Aloha Stadium, and Les Murakami Stadium.

If you look closely at the picture, you’ll see the team name “Hawaii Islanders” printed on the baseball, faded over time.

A fan from the islands shared this forty-something year old ball, from the Honolulu Stadium days, for this beautiful shot taken from Sheraton Waikiki’s Leahi Club.
