Description:

The Hawaii Islanders were a Triple-A team based in Honolulu, Hawaii, that played in the Pacific Coast League from 1961 through 1987. By the end of the 1960s the Islanders were considered the strongest franchise in the Minors, winning 98 games and drawing over 400,000 fans in 1970.

Due to the 2,500-mile distance from its nearest opponent, the Islanders played an eight-game series against each team to cut down on travel costs. While standard Minor League working agreements required a Minor League team to cede complete control of its roster to its MLB affiliate, Islanders' management signed players on their own to fill roster spots, and were free to trade, sell or release them without approval from their affiliate, the San Diego Padres. This method worked well for a time as the Islanders won consecutive PCL titles in 1975 and 1976.

However, poor attendance and financial instability caused the team to move prior to the 1988 season to Colorado Springs, Colorado where it became the current day Colorado Springs Sky Sox.
