The Spring 2019 season came to a close on June 30 with the MABL All-Star Game and HR Derby at Maehara Stadium. The Mauka team, made up of players representing the Pirates, Warriors, Dirtbags, and Hurricanes defeated the Makai team, comprised of players from the Brewers, Rays, Royals, and Centipedes behind a 3 run first inning. The final score was 5-2.
Following the game, 12 of the league’s top hitters competed in a Home Run Derby. Randy Button of the Kihei Centipedes, the Spring 2018 MABL Cy Young Award Winner, hit a total of 7 home runs to best Kalaika Kahoohalahala (with 3) and Jeremy Loque (with 2), the runners up.
