Sid was probably the dominant pitcher of his era, just like Tats was in his era. 10+ strikeouts seemed to be the norm. They were so dominating that I only remember when they lost.


The two were virtually untouchable, I first saw tats pitch in the PAL bronco championship, like a man among boys.

For example, one loss (I don't know if there were any more!) was in 1980. He lost a regular season pitching duel against Wayne Takamori and Castle, 2-1 (I think) at Aloha Stadium. It was a big deal then. Sid later beat Wayne and Castle in the State tournament semifinals, I believe. As a result, Sid was not available to pitch in the State championship game against Kamehameha, which beat Kaiser's no.2 pitcher (I think his name was Lawrence Fukuoka). An even more trivial tidbit from 1980 was that Castle played BIIF champ Hilo in the first round, and faced and beat Hilo ace Reed Sunahara (yes, the All State Basketball player, Volleyball All American at UCLA and current Cincinnati Women's VB coach). Sunahara's was unbeaten with an E.R.A. of 0.00 going into the State tournament, if I recall correctly. I think Guy Ogawa was on the mound for Castle.

As for Tats, I recall that McKinley beat him and Aiea in an OIA title game, and Aiea later went on to win


Amazing recall Duster, Just wanted to add a little more trivia about the only game Tats lost in his senior year. I remember Eric Tokunaga was the shortstop and Ron Nomura the catcher for Mckinley in that 1975 OIA championship game. I remember it because I thought that Tokunaga was supposed to play for Kaimuki, being that he was the Alii's (Kapahulu) main player. Aiea lost 1-0.

In my era, here are some guys in the ILH who were dominant:

roth pung (kamehameha)
timo donahue (damien)
kalani perry (kamehameha)
Brent Shimokawa (Iolani)

You know who also played during that era for University High?
Egan and Enson Inouye. Great athletes in their own right.

Timo and Brent are currently playing for the Waipahu AJA team. But I dunno if Brent is still there. Lots of good ex-college/HS players still play in that league. Anybody know a site with the current rosters for each team?

Anyone know what happened to Arthur Davis? (Pitcher - Waianae, 1993). Guy pretty much owned everyone in the OIA West. Last I heard he signed a minor league deal in 93-94, then dropped off the face of the earth.

Wasn't there a pitcher from Molokai (Mc???) that threw like a 100 innings (exaggeration) at the state tournament? Believe it was because of him that there are now limits on how much an individual pitcher can throw at States.

That pitchers name is Ikaikai Lester. He is an assistant coach with Baldwin currently.

I believe that rule is much older than Ikaika Lester is. I heard that this rule was instituted after a Baldwin pitcher named Glen Oura helped Baldwin win a state tournament in the late 50's/early 60's.

I believe the pitcher's first name was Nathan.

In addition to browndog's list of

roth pung (kamehameha)
timo donahue (damien)
kalani perry (kamehameha)
Brent Shimokawa (Iolani)

I'd add:

Tyler Kanetake: In a playoff game at Aloha Stadium, I remember him in left field, trying to catch up to a deep fly ball, and he ran INTO the wall, knocking himself out of the game.

The 1983 Kamehameha team was arguably one of the beat hitting teams in the state, ever. Along with Kalani Perry and Kanetake was a lefty that could really swing the bat (can't think of his name right now - something like Lawrence Smith???).
