HONOLULU - (Hawaii Athletics) The University of Hawai‘i Rainbow baseball
team finished the 2012 season ranked No. 13 nationally in home attendance, and
first in the west region. The ranking is four spots higher than in 2011, and
the highest in six years.
"This is a testament to the great fans we have in
Hawai‘i and how they support our program," said UH Head Coach Mike Trapasso,
who has been at the helm of the Rainbows for 11 years. "We try and play an
attractive schedule and put a great product on the field, but the fans have
come out regardless. Being in the Top 20 nationally and No. 1 in the region is
a great source of pride for our program."
UH averaged 3,340 per game with a grand total of 116,909
for the season in 35 contests.
2013 will mark a new era in Rainbow baseball, as the
team plays its first season as a member of the Big West Conference. The ‘Bows
open the 2013 season in mid-February, with the complete schedule to be released
at a later date.
Rainbows concluded the 2012 season at 30-25, their fourth straight season with
30 or more wins.
