Hawaii Winter Baseball says alohaBy
There’s been some rumblings about this for a couple of weeks now, but Kevin Goldstein says it’s now official: Hawaii Winter Baseball is kaput. Major League GM’s voted to consolidate off-season leagues to Arizona, so HWB’s second tour of duty comes to a close after three seasons (the league previously operated from 1993-1997). Rumor has it that a second Arizona Fall League will be established, but it’ll be a “junior league” for lower level players, similar to HWB. At least now we won’t have to be jealous of the players assigned to play in Hawaii each fall.
