Congratulations to Michael Linnell and the entire Kalawai Youth Baseball Club on hosting a successful Seventh Annual Martin Luther King goodwill baseball tournament at the Kalawai Park!
Allan Tanigawa had a chance to come home, bringing his sons who coach the GRIT team, and who was that gentleman who came straight from his trip from Las Vegas to check out his grandson who was participating with one of the 22 teams in the tournament?
Waimea High School baseball coach Chad Delanoza had the best spot in the house, checking out the action from under one of the trees, and Menehune softballer Jamie Horner was enjoying the Pasteles Dioja with her mom. Both are waiting on the Kauai Interscholastic Federation spring season so they can get out on their respective fields.
Congratulations to Micah Linnell who could not contain himself after conking one over the left field fence to win the home run derby (all the teams were winners because they were guaranteed at least five games over the three-day tournament!).
