Uniform & Team History
Professional baseball came to Hawaii in 1961 when the Sacramento Solons of the Pacific Coast League relocated to Honolulu. Carlos Bernier led the PCL in hitting in ’61 with a .351 average. Bernier, who played one season in the big leagues with Pittsburgh in 1953, is in the Pacific Coast League Hall of Fame.
Oldtime Game History
Jared Carrabis, a native of Saugus, Mass., who on his Twitter handle @JaredCarrabis describes himself as “The Tribal Chief of Baseball,” wore this uniform when he played in the Oldtime Baseball Game in 2017. Carrabis worked for Barstool Sports from 2014 to 2022 before taking his talents to Draft Kings. He also played in the Oldtime Baseball Game in 2016, wearing our No. 17 Dick Radatz Red Sox uniform.
The uniform was introduced to the Oldtime Baseball Game in 2009. Matt Gedman of UMass/Amherst christened it by hitting a home run. Gedman’s father, Rich Gedman, played for the Boston Red Sox and was their catcher in the 1986 World Series. Matt wore it again in 2010.
When Boston Bruins legend Raymond Bourque played in the 2018 Oldtime Baseball Game, he was joined by his two sons, including Ryan Bourque, who wore this uniform. Ryan played 10 years of professional hockey, including a stint in the NHL with the New York Rangers in 2014-15.
