Fifty of Hawaii's Greatest

To celebrate 50 years of statehood, The Advertiser sports staff voted — not without disagreement — and selected our top 50 sportspersons/teams/people who helped change or shape the landscape in Hawai'i sports since 1959.

A person did not have to have been born here, just accomplish something extraordinary for Hawai'i sports, be an incredible athlete, or made an impact simply by just making Hawai'i proud.

Our Fab 50 will go in chronological order starting with sportspersons from 1959-1969 decade. We will present a story a day for 50 days, starting July 3 and ending Aug. 21.
