Bradley Chiba, president of the Lihue Baseball League, and his committee of volunteers led the hosting of the traditional Da Bash baseball tournament that wrapped up Monday at the Lihue County Park.

The annual tournament featured 22 teams in the Mustang and Bronco divisions, including teams from Hanapepe, Kalawai, and Kapaa joining teams from off-island, including Maui and Oahu for an opportunity to play each other as well as build friendships and relationships through the game of baseball.

A potluck lu‘au midway through the tournament catalyzed the networking along with the food booth and tent offering tournament wear.

Play started Thursday evening and wrapped up Monday afternoon with the division championships.
