Maui and Baldwin declared DI HHSAA Co-State Champs

The 64th Wally Yonamine Foundation HHSAA Division I state baseball tournament was historic in multiple ways.

For the first time, the final featured two Maui Interscholastic League teams: second-seeded Maui and Baldwin. The game was called off in the third inning due to rain, with the score tied at 2-2, after multiple delays. Consequently, the Hawaii High School Athletic Association declared both teams state co-champions, a first in the tournament’s history since 1959.

The tournament began at Les Murakami Stadium but shifted to Moanalua High due to scheduling conflicts. Both teams reached the finals after one-run victories in the semifinals. The rainnforced delays and eventually the co-champion decision after safety concerns arose.

This marked Baldwin’s seventh state title and first since 2018, and Maui’s third title and first since 2017.
