Hawaii Islanders. The season before, Hawaii had the Bend Rainbows in the Northwest League. In the picture above, actor Kurt Russell, who at the time was appearing in Disney films, was trying to make a second career as a baseball player. Tom Trebelhorn, would later have success as a manager in the "bigs". Team Owner, Verne Russell (no relation to Kurt) is also pictured on the left in a tie. The team played at Borleske Stadium. It was a great place to spend a summer evening.
The next season, the team would begin a long affiliation with the San Diego Padres.
