The Na Koa Ikaika Maui (Maui Strong Warriors) won the 2013 Pacific Association championship which was held this weekend at Albert Park, home of the San Rafael Pacifics:
This is Maui’s first championship in its 4 years of play (2010 Golden Baseball League, 2011-2012 North American League, and 2013 Pacific Association). The team’s victory culminates a tumultuous first season for the Pacific Association which had 4 primary teams and a rotating schedule of other teams. The other rotating teams for the Pacific Association’s schedule included the East Bay Lumberjacks (who became full members of the league and were renamed the “Bay Cal Lumberjacks”), the Santa Rosa Rosebuds, an early-season “inter-league” play with the Freedom Professional Baseball League (based in Arizona), and the Hawaii teams played against teams from Japan’s Baseball Challenge League (BCL).
