More than 250 keiki between the ages of 6 and 9 were on the field during the Seventh annual Kalawai Youth Baseball Club’s Martin Luther King goodwill baseball tournament at Kalawai Park in Kalaheo.

Michael Linnell, president of the Kalawai Youth Baseball Club, said the tournament is a goodwill tournament, which means there are no winners among the field of 22 teams that included six teams (and their respective accompanying parents) from Oahu. Teams participating, including those from the different baseball programs like Little League, Cal Ripkin and Protect Our Nation’s Youth, got to play a minimum of five games over the three-day tournament.

Fundraising prize drawings, a homerun derby, tournament memorabilia, and good food like the Sunday special pasteles dioja, helped benefit the Kalawai Youth Baseball Club.
