Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Henry Kawaihoa "Prince" Oana (January 22, 1908 - June 19, 1976) was a Major League Baseball player with the Philadelphia Phillies and Detroit Tigers. Born in Waipahu, Hawaii, Oana was one of the first Hawaiian players to play Major League baseball. Oana was a big 6 ft 2 in (1.88 m) right-hander. He started as an outfielder, playing 6 games for the Philadelphia Phillies, collecting 5 hits and scoring 3 runs. Despite Oana's talents as a hitter, Rogers Hornsby converted him into a pitcher at Fort Worth in the early 1940s.show more
