Sunny, blue skies here at Les Murakami Stadium for this showdown of Kamehameha and Mid-Pacific, two teams tied for the lead in the ILH baseball standings at 5-1. The scent of burnt foliage and the sound of whirring helicopter propellers is upon us. Firefighters are still working on the brush fire that has again scorched […]

Four battlers instead of one ace resulted in an eerily similar pitching line for Campbell in Thursday night’s 7-0 victory over Waipahu.

The game is underway with nice work from the UH field maintenance crew, who kept the mound nice and dry on this drizzy day. The ILH is in the midst of three playing dates here […]

I‘m taking a break from the college scene to watch some high school baseball. ILH doubleheader at Les Murakami Stadium tonight beginning with No. 7 Saint Louis (2-3) against Punahou (1-4). Both teams in need of a win. Buffanblu got their only win of the ILH season so far against the Crusaders, a wild 13-11 […]

On the field, the McKinley baseball team is taking its lumps, but that’s OK because it’s a valuable experience for many first-time baseball players. “We’re struggling, but every day we’re getting better,” coach Kyle Kurahashi-Takenaka said. “It’s a learning process. About half of our roster has never played before or haven’t played since they were […]

It’s a gorgeous, hot afternoon in Manoa Valley for another gauntlet showdown in the ILH. No. 4-ranked Saint Louis visits No. 1 Mid-Pacific. (Note: By the time Tuesday morning rolls around, we’ll have a new Baseball Top 10 in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser. Until then, these teams are fourth and first.) The starting pitchers are Dawson […]
