Advertiser Staff

The Cartwright Cup, emblematic of the state high school baseball championship, will be unveiled at 11 a.m. today at Stadium Park on King Street in Moiliili.

The 3-foot-high koa and brass trophy, named in honor of the founder of the sport Alexander Joy Cartwright Jr., will be presented to the 2007 winner of the Wally Yonamine Hawai'i State High School Tournament Saturday at Les Murakami Stadium.

Past winners of the tournament since 1959 will be engraved on the four-sided trophy with the new winner added each year.

The perpetual trophy will be permanently housed at the University Branch of First Hawaiian Bank at South King and Isenberg streets with the winning school receiving a smaller version of the award.
