History: Hawaiians were thrilled about the arrival of their first professional baseball team in 1961. The Islanders chose revolutionary (at the time) color scheme of kelly green and gold. The Islanders were affiliated with the Kansas City Athletics. Is this what gave Charlie Finley the idea for the A's new color scheme?
