Independence Day Baseball Program

4th of July Independence Day Program

Pearl Harbor’s Chickamauga Park played host to two games at Schofield Barracks including the Pearl Harbor Submarine Base team.

This program and scorebook provided fantastic insight into multiple teams’ rosters from the Hawaii Leagues in 1943. In addition to the heavily sought after Pearl Harbor Submarine Base team, rosters from the Red Landers of Schofield Barracks and the Flyers from Bellows Field shed light upon what was previously unknown.

The cover of the scorebook is printed in monochrome (black) on (heavily-faded green) colored card stock paper and shows a significant crease from the book being folded. Stapled into the center is a single sheet of folded white paper (adding four pages) with enough scoring grids to keep score for both games that were set to be played that day (July 4th, 1943).
