Shimabukuro honored for decades of service

Warren Shimabukuro, who has served the Maui baseball community for more than 50 years, was honored by a proclamation from Maui County Mayor Mike Victorino on Thursday night at Maehara Stadium. The proclamation was read before the final quarterfinal game of the HHSAA/Wally Yonamine Foundation Division I state tournament between Baldwin High School and Waiakea. Shimabukuro has spearheaded groundskeeping at the stadium for several different organizations, including the Maui Interscholastic League, Maui AJA baseball and the Hawaii Winter Baseball League.
