Fouls, wild pitch even off the field

First Photo: One of the trademarks of minor league baseball games is all the hoopla that goes on between innings. During Wednesday’s night game between the Maui Na Koa Ikaika and the Ishikawa Million Stars at Maehara Stadium in Wailuku, there was plenty of shenanigans to keep the crowd entertained. Stadium color announcer Branscombe Richmond has fun with a Chelsea Prosser (from left), Laura King and Ginny King as they try to complete a tongue twister to win a trip to Lanai. Though they tried their best, each competitor fumbled by substituting the word “fart” for “smart” at one point or another and was eliminated.
