Synopsis: Alexander Cartwright, who invented the game of baseball in New York in the 1840s, soon took his bag of tricks to Hawai'i--where 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 Hawai'i Islanders before heading up to the Show." Homegrown talents are on display here along with the legends, as author Jim Vitti shows that Hawai'i's baseball history is as rich and diverse as anywhere on the mainland.."

About the Author: Author Jim Vitti writes books about baseball and islands (Chicago Cubs: Baseball on Catalina Island and Brooklyn Dodgers in Cuba), and he won the 2004 Sporting News/Society for American Baseball Research Award. As a kid he watched the Hawai'i Islanders play in Sacramento, wishing he could see their home games, too.
