Enter the Firebirds, in the Fall of 2018, with a grant from the Friends of Hawaii Charities, we started the State of Hawaii’s first ever baseball program for specially talented players. The response was out of this world, twenty-two players and families from all across Oahu joined us for an epic eight week adventure.
Our season was filled with swag gear to include: jerseys with their names and numbers, custom batting gloves with their names stamped, customized baseball trading cards and a trophy. Even though the players were given some “cool” stuff, it could not compare to the friendships and relationships created with the Mililani Trojan Varsity Baseball Team. They transmitted their knowledge and expertise to assist these kids in baseball activities - hitting, fielding, catching and throwing.
Our season ended with an experience of a lifetime - night game that we have titled, “Under the Lights.”
On December 16, 2018 we were featured in the Honolulu Star Advertiser Newspaper. Read our article below.
