Junior LL World Series- Taylor, Michigan

August 16, 2008:
Curacao Knocks Off Hilo In Junior Little League World Series Championship
August 16, 2008: Curacao used two home runs by Sherman LaCrus and Alex Rodrigues to end Hilo's journey to become Junior Little League World Champions. Curacao used timely hits and good pitching to win the 2008 Junior Little League World series 5-2 in Taylor Michigan. Ekolu Martens of Hilo was tagged with the loss. Ridge Hoopii-Haslem, scored Hilo's first run, singling in the first inning and reaching home on a Jayce Carvalho single taking a 1-0 lead. Curacao answered and took a 2-1 lead off of the homer by LaCrus. Hilo answered and would later tie the game at 2 in the top of the third when Taylor Goo had an RBI Single to bring around Kean Wong. However, Curacao would score 3 runs off a home run by Rodrigues in the bottom of the fifth. Rodrigues held Hilo's hitting express to only four hits, while team mate Ezquiel Garcia was able to strike out Hoopii-Haslem, get Jayce Carvalho to hit into a groundout fielders choice and Ekolu Martins to flyout to end the game. Taylor Goo was the lone Hilo player to pair hits for Hilo.

Perseverance Pays Off

By HawaiiSportsPage.com
July 15, 2008: 
Elijah Cruz waited three long years to make the Hilo American All Star team. Cruz made the most of his first All Star Appearance. In game one against Hamakua, Cruz hit a homerun and earned his first All-Star RBI.

"A successful person's journey is to hit the wall and find a way to clear it, to have no wall is guaranteed for future failure."

Elijah made
the most of game two by hitting another home run against West Coast. In the Championship game against Hilo National, Cruz was called upon to pitch and hold down the potent Hilo National Team. The Hilo American pitching staff and Cruz gave themselves a chance to win by giving up only seven runs. In regular season Cruz held the Pirates of the National division down and got the win in a important pivotal game. Cruz was mentored in pitching by coach Dean Desa, former UH Rainbow pitcher. Even though the Hilo American team did not win the championship, Cruz and team mates have learned about life and perseverance.

Other stellar team performances included a two hitter  thrown by pitcher Jalen Carvalho who had eleven strikeouts against West Coast, Carvalho also added a home run in that contest.
We must remember that youth sports are filled with coaches that hand pick talent to go to competitive tournaments, but there are thousands who never make an all star team and never will continue to play high school. Stories like Elijah are an exception and we applaud his hard work. However we would also like to recognize those that have bust their okoles in attempting to make an all star team and fall short. You are the real heroes.
Find your talent it will appear!

Senior LL Recognition Luncheon

Bill O'Rear Gives Praise and Advise To The
Hilo Little League Senior World Series Participants

By HawaiiSportsPage.com
October 7, 2007: Recently, Bill O'Rear spoke to the Hilo Senior Little League Western Regional Champions at their recognition luncheon as guest speaker. O'Rear consoled the team that even though they did not win the championship to be grateful to just make it to the World Series. "There are teams from the state and western region that did not make it to the World Series."" Hopefully you will always remember this for the rest of your lives." "Always remember that you got the opportunity to participate in a great event." Bill also talked about his own childhood affection to baseball and talked about his first little league baseball team he played for. "I'm married to a Filipino," said O'rear jokingly, "and I think my coach was Filipino, because we had these really bright orange uniforms." O'Rear went on to say his first experience of facing a pitcher that had beaned him and he being scared of hurting his then Hollywood to be face. O'Rear grew up near the Bay area of San Francisco and he enjoyed listening to the San Francisco Giants games and becoming fond of the Giant players like Willie Mays and Willie Mc Covey. He extolled Russ Hodges whom he admired as the Radio Announcer for the Giants and would have the phrase "Bye, Bye Baby," every time a Giant would hit a home run engrained in his mind forever. He probably misses those days but also praised John Miller, who he asked the Senior Little League players if they knew who Miller was. Not one of the players knew who John Miller was. He mentioned how John Miller became the Giant Announcer and continued the phrase made famous by Russ Hodges; Bye Bye Baby as O'Rear continued listening to Giant games on the radio. Miller of course became famous in his own right, as he is seen in millions of households today as ESPN's baseball play-by-play man. Bill mentioned that he still remembers his experience when he played for University of Hawaii at Hilo and for Coach Jimmy Yagi. He was part of the team that qualified and made it to the NAIA National Championships and played at Kemper Arena, a memory he will never forget, like the memory the Hilo Senior Little League Team made this summer. Calvin Unoki District IV League Administrator was the emcee along with Hilo Little League President and event coordinator Bobby Yamada. Curtis Chong assistant district IV administrator was also in attendance as well as many parents, relatives, friends and well wishers.
