Seryna wins tickets

Seryna wins the baseball tickets.

Thanks again to Avis for choosing the winner.

* * * * *

Kelly Majam blasted her record-setting 22nd home run today. She broke Kate Robinson’s Rainbow Wahine mark of 21 home runs in a season.

Majam actually holds the school record for home runs. The UH baseball record is 16, by Joey Meyer, in 1983. Majam, a second-year freshman, has a shot at John Matias’ career record of 30 home runs.

    Day off tomorrow. wooohooo. Running errands, md appts, renewing driver’s license, etc. Still need to come in early to take keed to school, though. Anyone up for late lunch (1pm ish) somewhere within walking distance of Queen’s Hosp?

    Queen’s Cafeteria is supposed to be good. They got some nice, healthy food. I always wondered why most of the Queen’s employees eat at the luchwagon’s behind the hospital, where they serve those Tsai-ko sized plate lunches.

    We’re going to do the same thing – bozoball at 3 pm and some villyborl at 5 pm. Not sure if we’re going to stay for the 7 pm match or if we’ll head on back across the way. Guess that depends upon how things turn out tonight and tomorrow afternoon.

    Running late – have to go to work. Doc appt at 1 pm and an afternoon mini-workshop on sustainable agriculture from 2 pm to 4 pm at UH. Then it’ll be killingtime until tonight’s game.

    Back in the 60s- Grace’s above the Y on University Ave was great; in the 80s , Tsukenjo’s on Ward by old GEM was very good. Grace’s now cjain of restaurants; don’t know if Tsukenjo’s still there.

  45. (Jesse)James April 9, 2010 11:20 am

    Yup Stretch is correct. Only in the 3rd inning and Na Wahine are working BSU like a part time job.

  50. Loa April 9, 2010 11:29 am

    Bronc’s Beanballs Fail to Cool Down Red-Hot Wahine Bats

    Amanda Taualii and Kanani Puu-Warren have the misfortune of batting in the last three slots in the order. They usually come to bat after their teammates in the begining of the order start fence-busting.
    Today, they were plunked three-times before the end of the 3rd inning as Kelly Majam (22), Gonzo (12) and Alex Aquirre (7) did their thing. The second HBP on Pu’u-Warren (15th hbp) drew a warning from the homeplate ump to no avail,the next batter, Tauali’i (8th hbp), was hit in the midsection.
    Hawaii had the last say in the inning, as Katie Grimes took it personally and hammered it over the CF wall.

    After 3–10-zip Wahine. 🙂

  54. Loa April 9, 2010 11:38 am

    d1島 – not sure which one but was before they when build the park

  55. Mike April 9, 2010 11:40 am

    Oh boy, now that GRM mentioned Tsukenjo’s, I might have to wander over to Cooke St. and grab a roast pork plate. I’m waiting for the day the lady at the window actually cracks a smile. I thought she was close once, but it turned out she was just getting something out of her teeth. Hmm, roast port or meatloaf…

  56. Kazz (blkberry_storm) April 9, 2010 11:40 am

    Already some are quick and subtle in attempting to belittle the Wahine’s homerun mana.

    In WAC Softball Twitter’s account they say: “Hawaii does it again in a SMALL ballpark” 🙄

  57. Mike April 9, 2010 11:41 am

    Majam so rocks…

  58. Mike April 9, 2010 11:43 am

    And why aren’t opposing hitters consistently lighting it up in our “small” park? Buncha tools…

  59. Loa April 9, 2010 11:44 am

    Kazz – no respect, the other team playing in the same park but they no mo runs

  60. Loa April 9, 2010 11:45 am

    whooah Mike almost same thing eh, must be the hair?

    Congratulations and Well Done Kelly Majam!


    Torii Lunch Wagon? or Tsukenjo?


    I tink Tsukenjo’s still on Cooke St.

    ….geez! All dis makin’ me hungreeeee……


    Torii had a luchwagon? Remember eating at a place called Torii’s on Sheridan St. right where the HMSA building is today. Used to have two choices, large, medium, or small.

    There was a place up in Malawao that was the same, two choices or mixed. Large, medium, or small. Food at both places was real ‘ono.

    And yes D1 is correct. Tsukenjo’s still on Cooke St. They get good potato salad that goes with their many assortment of entree’s.

  62. Stretch April 9, 2010 11:46 am

    Loa – looks like Laura Espinoza, Arizona, hit 37 homers in 72 games. I think this is the record but not 100% sure.

    Majam has 22 hrs in almost 42 games. She is on pace….

  63. Kazz (blkberry_storm) April 9, 2010 11:48 am


    Then the thin air excuse comes in.

    As if thin air makes one see the ball better to make the necessary contact…. 🙄

    Its ok. The Wahine just need to do their thing and take respect FORECFULLY!!!!

  64. Loa April 9, 2010 11:48 am

    Stretch – thanks, i hope i no bachi her for asking

  65. Stretch April 9, 2010 11:50 am

    After today’s game against Boise St, the Softball team will have 11 regular season games, the WAC tournament, and if they make the NCAA’s. Espinoza record is total homeruns and average homeruns per game at 0.51. If Majam doesn’t get past 37, then maybe she might be able to get a high homerun per game average??

    This is the link I am referencing, page 7

  66. Mike April 9, 2010 11:52 am

    Loa, it’s definitely the hair.

    Hey, anybody know if Masa’s is still open on King Street? Used to go for baked ahi when I worked at HMSA. Mmm.

  67. mailepua April 9, 2010 11:56 am

    Majam beaned–4th wahine HBP 🙁

  68. Ralph April 9, 2010 11:59 am

    I really thought Espinosa hit 41 hrs, but too lazy to look it up in Az record book.

  69. Kazz (blkberry_storm) April 9, 2010 12:02 pm

    Oh my God!!!


  70. mailepua April 9, 2010 12:03 pm

    All the wahine shots today have been the tape measure variety including Majam’s and Gonzo’s blasts that landed in unchartered grounds according to the the Bron radio announcers. They have made it clear that none of the HRs have been cheap shots!
    Everytime a bean is made the wahine have responded with a monster-shots….5 HRs in 5 innings! 32 cheers left on the wall–wahine now have 94 and chasing NCAA record of 126.

  71. mailepua April 9, 2010 12:06 pm

    Broncs seek therapist–Lord haith mercy–15-5 in 5, w 5 dinggers. 🙂

  72. Kekoa April 9, 2010 12:09 pm

    Hehehe…BozoState getting HAMMERED!…That’s how to Speak softly and carry a big stick!

    Love how they turn those *hit-by-pitch* mosquito bites into an incentive to knock those fences down. We need to mention on our media reports that they were tape measure shots.

  73. mailepua April 9, 2010 12:09 pm

    Error, 15-1 wahine, Ricketts now stands at 16-6.

  74. Kazz (blkberry_storm) April 9, 2010 12:10 pm

    I think I’m gonna get back to work now while the Wahine CRUNCH numbers of their own in Boise… 😆

  75. Kazz (blkberry_storm) April 9, 2010 12:13 pm

    The only immediate chasing I wanna see the Wahine do is a good one for the WAC Championship and a NCAA berth.

  76. Pomai April 9, 2010 12:15 pm

    Have to give the Na Wahine credit if it had been a mens team the dugout would have been cleared after the third one. But the Na Wahine do it in style, “hit me and the next one up will hit it over the fence”.

  77. Kekoa April 9, 2010 12:17 pm

    Thanks mailepua for confirming the tape measure reference by the announcers. Now we need RK & KL to emphasize those facts in their report tonite.

  78. mailepua April 9, 2010 12:26 pm

    Coach Coolen made a subtle adjustment in his batting order today switching Yoshikawa (.243) to #5 and Aquirre (.286) to #6. 2A not only hits for average, she also has more speed to first, has walked 12 times to Traci’s 4 and has a better Slug% and OB% ….Coach obviousily wants to restock the basepaths for his #8 hitter–Amanda Taual’i.
    I believe coach wanted more pop in the second half of the order by moving Alex up. Although Aquirre has over 30 hits she has the lowest RBI total in the order (15).
    Alex responded by banging a HR and driving in 2 runs….lol, Coach BC can no wrong when it’s humming.

  79. mailepua April 9, 2010 12:38 pm

    Quote of the Day:

    Bronc’s radio announcer after the wahine slammed 5 in 5,
    ” I dont think Hawaii likes to play smallball”.

  80. mailepua April 9, 2010 12:46 pm

    Kekoa, the radio announcers actually tracked the blasts by Majam and Gonzo, describing in detail where it landed. One said Gonzo’s landed in the picnic area and exclaimed, “I dont believe it has ever been hit there before”.
    On Majam’s moster-blast, he quiped several innings later, “it might still be traveling”. 🙂

  81. Kazz April 9, 2010 12:58 pm


    You can also “style” up the other team by showing them some fists on face action too.

    I don’t like it.

    It’s tough to see since, well, we cannot see it, but seemed like BSU was sending a message to the Wahine by attempting to bruise them up. If that’s the case, I don’t like that ____ at all.

    Look guys, wahine softball is reaching a zenith in hitting seldom witnessed.
    From Las Cruces through Logan and now Boise, the legend is growing. Our wahine have banged 27 HRs in 6 games. Even by video-game scale, that is outrageous!
    They have become the talk of the WAC and it’s seeping into the minds of opposing pitchers. Today, the Bronco radio netwk announcers spent alot of time discussing the pyschological impact of the HRs to the Boise State pitching staff. Not only the homeruns, but the power and distance it was hit. “It crushes your confidence” one reasoned.
    Mind you, up until today the lady Broncs led the WAC in conference ERA at 0.51 and bragged about it on their website. They came to the park believing they could stop Hawaii’s HR assault.
    The HBP balls are not insults–they are compliments to our wahine bows. Bring it on! The wahine are Warriors!

    Like baseball, hitting HRs will always be the stuff of great lore for softball. To be sure, you can bet the wahine are drawing national attention and it’s all for the good. What’s more, they are Hawaii’s team. Enjoy the phenom and come out for their homestand against LT and fill WSS. Our wahine deserve the support from it’s fans and the greater Hawaiian community….we still have a doubleheader tomorrow, so we need to maintain….kudos to Coach Bob and our wahine!

    As far as the homeruns go it might be more accurate to talk about HRs per inning since it seems like games are being curtailed due to the mercy rule.

  112. RedZone April 9, 2010 4:01 pm

    You can check out softball records here.

    Maybe Majam can go for the career record of 90.

    No one except clerks rave over HRs per game.
    Ask Roger Maris.
    When you talk about a Homerun King you dont say he averaged .075 per game….geez. And no one will care if Majam played less games than the reigning Queen.
    We just know the NCAA seasonal HR Queen amased 37 and Kelly has 22.
    Ditto with the 2001 Arizona team that holds the team season record at 126….it is within eyesight if your counting.
    To me a far bigger accomplishment for the wahine and Coach Coolen and his staff.

    Speaking of beanballs, It’s not surprising that Hawaii leads the WAC in this category w 45. That’s one bean for every 2 HRs if you want to be clerical again.
    If everything goes our way we should end up with 65 or more bruises for the season.

    Wouldnt our wahine look cute in bikinis. 🙂

    Kanani Pu’u-Warren holds the dubious distinction of perhaps being #1 nationally w 15 unless you pull a clerical correction on me. Traci Yoshikawa (9) and Amanda Tauali’i (8) are up there in the top 10 or so too.
    Kanani was #2 in HBP as displayed in fraction-form in last weeks NCAA stats–I couldnt find stats on team-beans.

  118. Ralph April 9, 2010 4:40 pm

    #1 Washington beat #2 Arizona 2-1. Lawrie the winner, 20-1 with a .94 era and 237 Ks, Kenzie Kerr took the loss, she is 21-2, .85 era with 197 Ks. Stanford beat Oregon State 4-3, Teagan Gerhart is now 21-4. I think as long as UDUB, Arizona, Stanford, and Cal keep winning, UH losses to them won’t weigh heavily against UH since everone else took a hit.

  119. Ralph April 9, 2010 4:42 pm

    Bronc’s 15-1 whippin by the Wahine the Worst in their history–looking for revenge tomorrow–more beanballs?

    Broncos Fall To Wahine in Series Opener
    BOISE, Idaho – The Boise State softball team was run-ruled for the first time in WAC play this year with a 15-1 loss to No. 25 Hawaii at Mountain Cove. The Rainbow Wahine’s (31-11, 9-0) 15 runs are the most runs given up by the Broncos (15-23, 4-3) in their short history.

    The Broncos could not find an answer to the powerful Rainbow Wahine lineup as the visitors stroked five home runs to secure the victory. The Wahine got the scoring started early on a two-run homer by Melissa Gonzalez in the top of the first. Another homer in the top of the second gave the Wahine a 5-0 lead, which they doubled with their first of two five-run innings in the top of the third.

    In the bottom of the third, the Broncos threatened to get on the board when Holly Bourke led off the inning with a single and advanced to second on an error. After she was sacrificed over to third by Allie Crump, Bourke was cut down at home on a ground ball to Traci Yoshikawa. The Broncos did get on the board in the bottom of the fourth for their only run of the game. Kelly Sweeney walked with one out, advanced to second on a ground ball and scored when Tazz Weatherly’s grounder to first was booted into right field.

    The Wahine again padded their lead with five runs in the top of the fifth although only one was earned. Lela Work pitched well in relief for the Broncos as she gave up only one earned run on three hits while striking out three in 2.2 innings of work.

    Kathy Cox also collected another multi-hit performance with hits in the first and seventh innings. Her two hits accounted for half of the Broncos’ four hits in the game.

    The Broncos will look for revenge on the Wahine tomorrow in a doubleheader at Mountain Cove with the first game scheduled for 1 p.m.

  124. Slugger April 9, 2010 5:31 pm

    On an NPR radio program (KIPO) this afternoon, pitcher Bob Gibson was being interviewed & he was talking about why a pitcher would hit a batter. I think the reasoning to do that is b——-. He was saying that if a batter hit his best pitch for a HR, he’d hit him, supposedly to maintain respect from the batter. Bull…., if a batter hit your best pitch, then you better improve your pitching. Play the game using your skills, not with excuses. JMHO

    Congrats to Na Wahine! Good luck tomorrow and healing energy sent your way.

  127. mailepua April 9, 2010 6:11 pm

    Slugger #125, I understand where you’re coming from as a fan and indeed, your view is noble.
    But, Bob Gibson speaks more about the culture of the game than its assessed ethic.
    What Gibson speaks, agree or disagree, is the way the game is played. Especially in the Big Leagues.
    It is learned behavior.
    It starts in youth league, ironically where good sportsmanship is taught and naturally migrates up the ladder of competive levels all the way to college ball.

    Ho Chi Min once said, “your enemy honors you by hard they fight”.

    Taking a postscript of that notion and applying it to our HR-crazy wahine–opponents honor our batters with beanballs.
    Strange as it may sound, in the absolute culture of softball, it is a tribute to our team whom are blessed with great hitting powers.

    That is not to say it is OK nor should it be tolerated, just saying the wahine are aware of this beanball culture–and have thus far, managed to keep their kool–and get even, not mad!

    The wahine have demonstrated 45 times unbelieveable restraint and poise. That is a team trait you have to extend credit to Coach Coolen. He is the trigger….or in this case, the wise harness, that takes the anger and transforms its energy into HRs.
    Katie Grimes did it today in a manner that embarrassed the entire Bronco team by towering a HR to center after Kanani and Tauali’i were consecutively HBPs.
    Amanda’s bean came after the home plate ump issued a warning to the Boise State dugout.
    This team not only has power…. it ouzes also with class.

    Majam Chases Mythical Triple Crown

    The most coveted of all batting crowns has no trophy.
    Perhaps because it is so illusive an achievement often reserved for softball’s version of Halley’s Comet or a storybook Princess fantasy creates.

    Enter Kelly Majum.
    Double Zeroes.
    Princess of Swat.
    A pitchers worst nightmare.
    Lead-off hitter for the Na Wahine from the aina of the Black n Green.
    Currently stroking a .406 BA (4th).
    WAC-HR leader with 22.
    No.1 in RBI’s with 44.

    What is astonishing for this second year, 5’3″ freshman from Pine Valley, California–Majum is a lead-off hitter with an attitude for the longball.
    Traditionally, those who chase the T-C are number 3 or cleanup in the batting order.
    Simply put, lead-off batters dont compete in RBIs and HRs.
    Hits, stolen bases, OB percentages and runs, for sure, but, not the longball or driving in runs from the top of the order.

    Majum leads the WAC in numerous offensive categories that would impress the Babe himself. Including HRs, RBIs, hits, slugging percent, runs scored and total bases. What else is there?

    Mickey Mantle was a reknown Triple Crown King and he batted No 3 for the Yankees. He could get to 1B in 3.2 from the left side of the box, bunt to get on base and hit it out of the stadium into the street.
    He too, played CF.
    Pete Rose holds the major league record for career hits and he was a leadoff hitter. Rose an ex-Marine, liked to knock out catchers sliding into homeplate. But he never led his league in HRs or RBIs.
    Majum has a rare admixture of combustible qualities and is blessed with a quick bat, power (HRs landing in the adjoining tennis courts at WSS), speed on the basepaths and drives in clutch runs by the bunches–all from the no. 1 spot. She does not have an error in CF and chases flyballs with her back to the ball without looking at them.
    Kelly must overtake NMSU’s Kylie Randall (.438) to win the first part of the TC. No easy task.

    If you are a betting person, double zeroes just may add-up to a mythical Triple Crown.

  139. Ralph April 9, 2010 8:35 pm

    UDUB played to a sold out full house at home against #2 Arizona and there were only 1125 in attendance. I guess UH isn’t doing to badly with its crowd at home, but can those numbers justifying charging a fee to watch the game. Better to sell more signage for revenue.

  140. Ralph April 9, 2010 8:37 pm

    UDUB charges for single game admission $8 for reserved seats, $6 adult general admission and $4 for youth general admission. They charge as much as UH charges for baseball.

    Trap is 16-13 with an upgraded preseason schedule and the house is nearly full, as Ferd wrote in his column, play the best, win, and they will come. The bows have played competitively, the pitching is hurting physically, with a little luck they should be okay in the WAC.

  156. NorthShoreFan April 9, 2010 11:37 pm

  157. mailepua April 10, 2010 12:11 am

    #152, thanx and great spot, I always check those stats–Iwata has game–these two frosh are the best first-year combo in the WAC, but as I mentioned in another post, Iwata’s fielding needs to improve–she is porous AND that is holding her back from national recognition. Check out GaTech’s all-america, 2B Jen Yee. Great hitter (1.200 slug %) (.752 OB%) and extraordinare fielder. She has 44 BBs and only two KOs and is the most difficult to strike out in college D1. Majam (29) and Iwata (25) are too many times and have less BBs than KOs.
    The mark of a great hitter is less KOs than BBs. Kolten Wong did that in his frosh year.
    Still, Majam (Fr) is in Yee’s (Sr) league and Kelly can play D.
    It’s going to be fun watching Iwata grow into her position. She has it in her to get better on D. her hitting will only get better–she has a great stroke.

  158. mailepua April 10, 2010 12:15 am

    Melissa Gonzalez is the only wahine in the batting order to have more BBs than KOs (16 BBs and 8 KOs).

  172. Manoa April 10, 2010 6:41 am

    I remember when softball was a pitcher’s game and offense was the slap, and the drag bunt from the first base side. If you were not a left-handed hitter, you at least had to learn to drag or slap from the left handed side and take off for first.

    The game changed with better bats, better hitters, and teams like UCLA and Arizona over 10 years ago that began the power hitting game.

    Any softball gurus that can tell us what technical changes have moved hitters ahead of the pitchers in fast pitch? BTW– Majam has a beautiful swing.

    Mornin’ Manoa!

    I’ll take a stab at your question. Along with the equipment technology, 2 words…batting cages. There are hundreds of indoor/outdoor franchise operations with pitching machines that are geared for batters. From Slow Pitch to 100 MPH breaking stuff, hitting coaches can be hired to help you groove your swing. Pitchers can also receive individual instruction from former big league players.

    Combine the availability of these places at all hours, with many more recreational leagues, and there you have it!

  176. Kekoa (iPhone) April 10, 2010 7:25 am

    Happy Trails to Aunty Liz as she embarks on her journey to the PNW. Enjoy those precious moments with your Mo’opuna. A hui hou ka kou!

    Thanks, Kekoa.

    That makes a lot of sense. Train with a machine and get to where you can hit the ball coming even faster than a fast pitch thrower– then the real thing looks slower.

    No doubt part of it is also upper body strength training for girls. Girls respond more to upper body training because they have a lot less than boys and thus gain more from the training.

    I remember when it seemed almost impossible even to make contact or to touch it from a bunt stance.
