The baseball team’s 17th Grand Slam Celebration was well attended and well intended. Proceeds help pay for summer sessions and other baseball necessities.

    One of the auction items was a beer growler.
    Yeah, I know it’s something that sounds like a guy who had his beer stolen. But what’s the purpose?

    You can use a beer growler at certain (usually craft) places that allow beer “to go”.

    from MWC news …

    AJ Vaipulu was offered by Hawaii, for 2020.

    Is he related to Solo ?

    Anyone have links to his high lights ?

    Top of Haleakala is covered with snow. Just like its sister mountains, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. Great sight to see.

    I suspect he’s solo’s brother as they went to the same school and solo retweeted AJ’s tweet. It says AJ is a class of 22 graduate and he just made maxprep freshman all american team.

    AJ’s highlights:

    if his job was to smash/demolish an OL man — he did a great job — looks really strong.

    He going end up at Alabama. Crimson Tide Football…. Pffttt

    opinion or fact?

    Opinion. And then fact.

    Why are these guys on radio so quick to judge a rookie qb so fast. Josh Rosen has one bad season which was his first and they all want him out of there already. If they did that to aikman he would’ve been gone after a no win season his rookie season. People are so crazy now.

    Gonna post on UH Baseball (actual topic after all). Very casual fan so not that knowledgeable sorry. But imagine if…

    Trapasso’s decision with Thomas works out.

    DeMiero can pitch like he did 2017

    Ashworth (buy him a bus pass) is still effective in his new capacity. (is he the closer? Is he still set up? Is he fully healed? Is he even eligible?)

    Hatton can pitch like he did early last season consistantly this coming season.

    Koltermann and Pouelsen have specific roles this season. Let them mentally prepare.

    Smith can realize his full potential

    Yelland can solve his control issues

    And Trapasso can develop Halemanu into that locally produced “star” rotational piece that never have in a while.

    I think Trap has to produce with this group. Looks so good on paper. I will defer expectation commentary for Cappie.

    Hatton is out for the season due to injury, i think.
    Aaron Davenport could be a good pitcher for the Bows this year.

    Remember La Tech’s Jaylon Ferguson ?

    According to NFL.com, Ferguson’s invitation to the NFL combine has been rescinded after a background check on the former Louisiana Tech star showed that he had once been convicted of simple battery. Ferguson’s run-in with the law came during his freshman year in college after he was involved in a fight at a local McDonald’s.
