It’s Monday morning and it’s time for atypicalLIVING’s weekly Hawaii Winter Baseball coverage.

Well, there wasn’t too much going on this week in Hawaii Winter Baseball, as the weekend games at Les Murakami Stadium and Hans L’Orange Field were rained out.  Not to worry, as the teams will be back at it again this week, trying to bring the momentum from an amazing World Series into the games of this season.  I know a lot of the guys in the league are either Rays or Phillies farmhands, so there’s a lot of interest in the events going on in Philadelphia right now.

The updated standings:

  • Honolulu Sharks: 13-8
  • Waipahu CaneFires: 11-10
  • Waikiki BeachBoys: 10-11
  • North Shore Honu: 8-13

As is customary, Monday is the off day for the league, with action resuming tomorrow.  This week’s midweek series pits the CaneFires vs. the Honu and the BeachBoys vs. the Sharks.  The midweek series take place at Hans L’Orange Field in Waipahu.

The weekend series has the Honu vs. the Sharks at Les Murakami Stadium and the BeachBoys vs the CaneFires at Hans L’Orange.  Don’t forget to bring along a radio (or Hele Wireless-equipped laptop) with you as ESPN 1420 will be broadcasting play-by-play for the Honu/Sharks games on Tuesday and Wednesday nights.

This week’s special events are sponsored by Kraft, Pizza Hut, Sea Life Park, and Ben Franklin Crafts.  It is Halloween Weekend, and both kids and adults get in for $1 if they come to the park dressed in costume.  Also, Sea Life Park will be holding a special interactive dolphin swim with coaches from the Honu and the Sharks.  Finally, Ben Franklin Crafts will be running their baseball card booth again at Les Murakami Stadium.  It’s a great weekend for baseball this weekend, hopefully, the weather can cooperate.

That will do it for this week’s atypicalLIVING Hawaii Winter Baseball wrap-up.  Join us every Monday for the HWB Weekly Wrap-Up, as we bring you the week that was in Hawaii Winter Baseball.
