Alexander Cartwright, who invented the game of baseball in New York in the 1840’s, soon took his bag of tricks to Hawaii – where the adoption of the pastime predates most other American locales. Pineapple plantation teams played rival sugar refinery clubs with Chinese, Korean and Japanese teams. Barnstorming big-leaguers landed during the winter, and Pearl Harbor brought the biggest names in the sport to paradise: Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, Lou Gehrig, John McGraw, and many more. Barry Bonds and Tony Gwynn played for the Hawaii Islanders before heading up to “The Show”. Homegrown talents are on display here along with the legends, as author Jim Vitti shows that Hawaii’s baseball history is as rich and diverse as anywhere on the mainland.
