Congratulations to the University of Hawaii Baseball Rainbows for winning the WAC regular season and embarking on their road to defending their WAC Tournament title from last year. They start play today against San Jose St over in Temp, AZ and you can hear it live on ESPN 1420 AM in Honolulu, or online at http://www.espn1420am.com.
On my radio show last week (This Week aired May 18, 2011 on ESPN 1420 AM) I wanted to see what are the changes in the game of baseball when you hit post season play. Obviously there is the mental pressure and added preparation. But unlike football or basketball where the physical intensity picks up, baseball is void of that. They don’t come in contact with each other. It is still basically the pitcher versus the batter, catch the ball, throw the ball. So I talked with Howard Dashefsky, former UH baseball player and member of the infamous 1980 College World Series runner up team, and former TV news anchor and current OC 16 broadcaster, and asked this question.
Also on the show:
- The “Hawaii 5-0” season finale cliffhanger
