BY KATHY FOLEY — The UH baseball season opened with the Outrigger Resorts Opening Series Feb. 17-19 at Les Murakami Stadium. The Rainbow Warriors, ranked #19 in the nation, started big against #6 NC State Wolfpack.
UH had plenty of support from #teamOutrigger who was out in force Friday, Feb. 17, delivering an entertaining and interactive fan experience with various promotions including giveaways to the first 200 fans. Outrigger VIPs and partners were invited to a “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” themed pregame reception at Kani Ka Pila Grille, trolley ride to and from the game and traditional baseball fare to enjoy while watching the ‘Bows.
A family-fun event, Outrigger sponsored the on-field promo where keiki contestants participated in hamster races earning them a prize pack worthy of their efforts. The young and young-at-heart had a chance to catch Outrigger T-shirts during our T-shirt toss, always a crowd pleaser.
Mahalo to #teamOutrigger for making Outrigger a fan favorite: Ally Fa, Charlene Goo, Kathy Hansberry, Lorry Ijima-Sato, Scott Sato, Ashelly Ijima, Brent Shiratori, Danny Wang, Jo-Ann Yonamine, Lauren Haavik, Lianne Bryant, Lisa Asakura, Michellee Phelps, Nathan Sato, Pam Cabrera, Patty Foley and Peter Fa.
Despite their valiant efforts, the ‘Bows fell to the Wolfpack but not before putting on an impressive hitting display that evened the series on Saturday. Great batting, ‘Bows. Until next time…
