CSU football's first trip to Hawaii was a harrowing 13-day journey
They rode three different trains and spent 10 days on a ship battling a raging storm in the Pacific Ocean that left all but a handful of players “leaning far over the rail” of the S.S. Manoa with serious bouts of seasickness.
One player, fullback Fay Rankin, was hospitalized along the way with diphtheria.
By the time coach Harry Hughes and his 16 players on the football team from Colorado Agricultural College, as CSU was known at the time, arrived in Honolulu on Dec. 11, 1925, they were in no condition to play a game the following day, said John Hirn, author of “Aggies to Rams,” a book chronicling the history of Colorado State University’s football program.
“More than half of the players were still seasick when they took the field,” for the first game ever between CSU and Hawaii, Hirn wrote.
The teams will meet for the 24th time at 10 p.m. Saturday at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.
“You can hardly imagine that, because we’re thinking like, ‘Dang, it’s going to be long flight, 6-, 7-, maybe an 8-hour trip depending on how long our layover to refuel stop is,” senior quarterback Nick Stevens said Wednesday. “But when you talk about a 10-day boat ride, not even including the trains, that’s crazy.”
Hughes’ Aggies, as CSU’s athletic teams were known at the time, were 9-0 and had already claimed the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference title before leaving Fort Collins on Nov. 29 to begin the 13-day journey to the Territory of Hawaii, which wouldn’t become a state for another 34 years. Hundreds of fans turned out, waving banners and cheering the Aggies on as they boarded their train at the Colorado & Southern Depot on what is now LaPorte Avenue, Hirn wrote.
Hughes brought team manager Clark “Sparks” Alford along but left his two assistant coaches and many of his players behind in an effort to save money on a trip that cost the school about $6,000.
The school’s annual athletic budget was about $40,000. Hughes refused to “subsidize athletics” with money that could go to academics, Hirn wrote. Local business owners raised an additional $400 so Hughes’ wife, Minnie Lee, and 11-year-old son, Billy, could make the trip.
The C&S train took the Aggies to Greeley, where they switched to a Union Pacific train bound for Ogden, Utah. There, they switched to a Southern Pacific train to San Francisco, where a hotel bus decorated in CAC’s school colors of pumpkin (orange) and alfalfa (green) picked them up and took them to the Bellevue Hotel (now the Marker Hotel). They were greeted there by a large basket of fresh oranges and a large pennant that read, “From the Aggies of California.” A banquet dinner that night and sightseeing excursion the following day were paid for by the school’s alumni and friends in California.
No CAC team had ever traveled further west than Salt Lake City.
Rain prevented the Aggies from getting in a planned practice Dec. 1 in San Francisco, and the team left for Honolulu the following morning aboard the Matson Line’s S.S. Manoa, a 13,000-ton steamship, 446 feet long, with 30 passenger cabins and a capacity of 90 passengers. Dozens of the California Aggies turned out to send the team off, the ship was flying a giant Aggie pennant and the shipping company released orange and green balloons as the ship left port.
Rough seas were encountered soon after the ship left, and other passengers said they saw many of the “Farmer footballers ‘leaning far over the rail,’ ” Hirn wrote.
Most remained sick throughout the trip and into the game, played on a hot and humid day, with temperature and humidity levels reaching the 90s, said Hirn,a volunteer historian for CSU’s athletic department.
Hawaii,” coached by Otto “Proc” Klum, had beaten the Aggies’ RMAC rival, the University of Colorado, 13-0 in Honolulu at the end of the previous season and came into the game riding a 17-game winning streak. Klum’s “Wonder Teams,” as the 1924-25 squads came to be known, had outscored eight previous opponents in 1925 by a combined 360-6. Seven of those games were against teams from four military bases and three against local club teams on Oahu, while the eighth was at Occidental College in Los Angeles — just the second road game in school history (Hawaii lost a game at Cal Poly-Pomona in 1923).
The Aggies fell behind Hawaii 9-0 after one quarter and lost team captain Hans Wagner to a career-ending knee injury in the second quarter. They lost 41-0 despite a 170-yard rushing effort by quarterback Kenny Hyde, an Estes Park native who was named a third-team All-American on the day of the game. Hyde told his son, John, many years later that he was still feeling the effects of his seasickness during and after the game, Hirn wrote
Seas were calmer for the trip back to San Francisco aboard the Manoa, allowing the Aggies to play cards, shuffleboard and other deck sports along the way, Hirn wrote. With CAC out for winter break, everyone went their separate ways before returning to Fort Collins in January for the spring semester.
It was 39 years before a CSU football team returned to Hawaii. That team, in 1964, made the trip by plane and won 13-6.

I was too busy watching baseball this week to catch Bill O’Reilly on “The Daily Show,” where he defended his belief in the Model Minority myth and how it’s evolved into a sense of “Asian American Privilege.”
Who needs that bunk when there was a very special Asian American event happening at the San Francisco Giants’ AT&T Park.
There has rarely been such a moment for those of us who identify as Asian American, even though it may have been unremarkable to others.
Travis Ishikawa? Kolten Wong? Heroes? What’s the big deal, right?

Oh, I wish we were at that point in our nation’s history. Post-racial, Asian American-style.
But truthfully, we aren’t there yet. The idea of two Asian Americans as the critical stars in America’s pastime, baseball, is really quite remarkable in the history of diversity in our country.
It happened just this past week when the St.Louis Cardinals played the San Francisco Giants for the National League Championship.
For a while, the hottest player on the ball field was a 5-foot-9-inch second baseman from Hilo, Hawaii, a star at Honolulu’s Kamehameha School, and the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
Was there anyone hotter in the game than a guy with the improbable baseball name of Kolten Wong?
For a few days, no.

In a league where the best players of Asian descent are actually established pros from Japan or Korea, the native-born Asian American has rarely shined as brightly in baseball.
The major exception, perhaps, has been the Giants’ Tim Lincecum, who is part-Filipino. He has twice been the National League’s best pitcher, twice thrown a no-hitter, and twice been a World Series champion.
That’s quite the exception.
For most Asian Americans, Wong’s experience is more normal. Deemed a can’t miss star as a rookie last year, he was a goat in the 2013 World Series when he was picked-off in a critical Cardinal rally by Red Sox pitcher Koji Uehara.
That brought out the racist tweets, as documented last year by the website, Public Shaming.
Tweets went after both the native born and the “foreigner.” It was all the same to the twitterverse.
And they went after the baseball acumen of Wong.
Incidents straight out of the Jackie Robinson era, I’d say.
This year, Wong again struggled, spent most of his time in the minors, then was called up in the latter part of the season where he blossomed like a hibiscus.
Wong hit a home run to help his Cardinals beat the Dodgers and advance in the five- game division series.
Then in the National League Championship against the Giants, Wong hit another game ending home run in game 2 that tied up the series as it went back to San Francisco.
Wong continued to terrorize the Giants with his quick left-handed bat. After the first four games he was the Cardinals’ Hawaiian Punch: two doubles, a triple, two homers, four RBIs. He was playing like the Cardinals’ MVP.
But in Game 5 on Thursday, the Cardinals were still down 3 games to 1 and were threatened with elimination. In the 9th inning , with the score tied 3-3, Wong sparked a rally attempt to load the bases. But the team failed to get a go-ahead run home.
Better luck next year.
Giants’ turn. In the bottom of the ninth, Pablo Sandoval, whose roundness has earned him the nickname “Panda” singled. Then Brandon Belt walked.
Next up, the 31-year-old Travis Ishikawa.

At 6-foot-3-inches, 220 pounds, Ishikawa is far from your typical Asian American. Born to a third generation Japanese American father and a mother of European descent, Ishikawa is half-Japanese American. But his background includes the worst of the Asian American experience. His paternal grandfather was interned during WWII in Colorado.
Ishikawa’s big break came in 2002, when the Giants drafted him straight out of high school in Federal Way near Seattle. He was offered a reported $995,000 bonus to skip college and go pro.
But it wasn’t easy money. In 12 years, he’s been an example of how difficult it is to play pro baseball, with multiple trips from obscurity to the bigs and back.
For the Giants, Ishikawa’s been both the hope and the nope.
At one time, billed as the first baseman of their future, he even played on the Giants’ 2010 championship team, only to lose his batting touch and be released the following year.
Since then, Ishikawa has been on six different pro clubs and started this season with Pittsburgh. After being released, he knocked around, got no takers. He even considered quitting.
“I’ve been 30 all year, and it gets to the point, you’re in the minor leagues and not only are you in the minor leagues but you’re struggling,” he told reporters. “There’s times it crosses your mind if God is continuing to put me through this trial, or it’s him telling me to hang it up and do something else.”
Ishikawa described how bad it got: “I was putting every effort I possibly could into the hitting and no matter what, I was 0-for 4 and didn’t look like I could hit a ball off a tee if you put it there.”
But Ishikawa didn’t give up. He worked hard and was given a second chance in July by the Giants to be a role player.
Hero was not necessarily the role.
He was on the margins, not a star, but in the glow of others.
Still, injuries have a way of altering the course of events in sports, and due to a depleted roster, the Giants had no choice but to put Ishikawa in left field for the post-season.
Having only played a few games at the pos ition, he was a risk. It was averted for the most part. But not on Thursday.
Ishikawa had made a few good catches in the series, but in the third inning he badly misread a fly ball that sailed over his head for a double. It made him look foolish. More importantly, the misplay gave the Cardinals a 1-0 lead. And if the Giants lost by that margin, Ishikawa would be the goat.
But he would get a chance to do something about that in the ninth inning. With the score at 3-3, it was a surprise even to see Ishikawa still playing. Ordinarily he’d be replaced late in the game by a better defensive player.

With the two-balls and no strike count, Ishikawa said he figured a fastball would be coming. And he guessed right.
“It was just nice to hit that ball,” he said.
From where I sat, Ishikawa hit the ball right in the sweet spot, on a line but with just enough loft to get over the high brick wall in right field.
He rounded the bases and could hear the loud crowd cheering him on. In one swing, Ishikawa delivered–a three-run homer that ended the game, gave the Giants a 6-3 victory, the National League Pennant, and a ticket to the World Series.
“I don’t remember touching third or touching home,” he said. “It’s unbelievable.”
The walk-off home run could immortalize Ishikawa, no longer the star in the margins, as the latter-day Bobby Thompson.
You’ll recall Thompson hit that legendary game-winning home run that won the pennant for the New York Giants and sent them to the World Series in 1951.
Travis Ishikawa, a name to remember?
Surely, he’s a baseball hero if you’re a Giants fan.
But for all America, he’s something more.
He’s diversity’s hero.
