HONOLULU – (Hawaii Athletics) The University of
Hawai'i Rainbow baseball team will host a pair of games this Fall against the
Shanghai Sports Institute of China. The Rainbows will play Shanghai on Oct. 16
and 17 at 6:00 p.m. at Les Murakami Stadium. Admission is free for both games.
The games mark the first time during Mike Trapasso's 11 seasons as head
coach that the 'Bows will play a fall game against an outside opponent.
"Typically, our fall practice session consists of intra-squad scrimmages," said
Coach Trapasso, "so it will be a welcome change to play outside competition. It
will also be a nice opportunity for our fans to catch an early glimpse of some
of our new players."
The Rainbows concluded the 2012 season at 30-25, their fourth straight season
with 30 or more wins. UH will begin the 2013 campaign this February, with the
announcement of the complete schedule coming next week.
