Tiny came up big while home runs were the order yesterday at the opening of the seventh Cal Ripken 12-and-under World Series in Aberdeen. At least one homer was hit in four of six games, two of them game-winners, but it was a bunt by one of the smallest players in the tournament, 3-foot-7 Anson Arruda, that carried defending champion Hilo, Hawaii, to a 2-0 victory over Kennewick, Wash. Hilo and Kennewick opened the series in the first game ever played at the Ripken Academy's Fenway field, which has a mini- Green Monster in left field.

'Hawai'i: The Big Island' Lonely Planet, $19.99: Oahu, Maui and Kauai might get most of the publicity and a good portion of the Hawaiian tourist trade, but the Big Island of Hawaii has its own special qualities. First, a brief terminology lesson: "Hawaiian" refers to a person of native Hawaiian ancestry; thus, every resident of Hawaii is not a Hawaiian. To use a famous example, Barack Obama was born in Honolulu and partly raised there, but he would be described more accurately as a local, not as a Hawaiian.

You have an open day on the Big Island. You've already seen the lava spilling from Mauna Loa, you've had your fill of the fancy hotels of the Kona and Kohala coast, you've prowled the tidy ranch town of Waimea and the weather-beaten grid of Hilo. So you bear north on Hawaii Highways 19 and 240, and soon you stand at a startling overlook, staring down 900 feet at jungle treetops, a black-sand beach, free-roaming horses, a few scattered rusty metal roofs, a couple of 1,000-foot waterfalls.This is the Waipio Valley, one mile wide, six miles long, emptying into the sea, accessible only by one very rugged road, which drops from the ridge at a 25 percent grade.

Sometimes a loss can be turned into a gain and it did for Hawaii in yesterday's Cal Ripken 12-and-under World Series championship game at Cal Sr.'s Yard in Aberdeen, as a United States team from Hawaii repeated as series winner with a 5-2 victory over Mexico. Kean Wong threw three scoreless innings in relief for Hilo, Ridge Hoopi-Haslam homered for the second consecutive game and Kawika Pruett, who was named the Most Outstanding U.S. Player, had two hits, including a two-run double in a three-run first inning that set the tempo.

Do you have information about a hula-dancing competition in Hawaii in the spring?The competition you are probably referring to is the Merrie Monarch Festival, a popular annual event, in which about 30 hula halau, or hula troops, gather in Hilo. Two styles of hula are judged: kahiko (ancient hula) and auana (modern hula).The 1997 Merrie Monarch Festival is scheduled for March 30 to April 5.The competition is one of the grandest hula-dancing spectacles in the world, with kahiko dancers wearing traditional costumes of native plant material, including hau tree bark and ferns, and auana performers in more elaborate apparel, including Victorian-influenced costumes of velvet and feathered hats.

HILO, Hawaii -- He is quicker with a smile than his father was. And clearly he is what is known as a "people person," something his dad definitely was not. Yet the physical resemblance is striking. When Valparaiso plays Minnesota in the opening round of the Big Island Invitational at 9:30 tonight, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Jr. will be making his collegiate debut.A freshman who redshirted last year, Abdul-Jabbar, 6 feet 6, will come off the bench as a small forward. He was not heavily recruited out of Brentwood High School.
