2014 Waimea Dodgers players of Hawai`i State Champions Kona Lil' Soljahs received individual plaques for participation in the Inaugural Mustang 9's World Series championships held in July in Walnut, CA. Getting there required mental and physical dedication from players. "The boys worked hard at practices and games, won the Hawaii State Mustang 9's title in Hilo, then rallied with family to raise monies for the trip" says Melissa Samura, parent of Braeden Samura. "It was an experience of a lifetime!" Kona Lil' Soljahs represented Team Hawai`i and placed 3rd out of an 8 team tournament.
