SUMMER CAMPS

We are the Champions!

Congratulations to the Scarborough Stingers Minor Bantam A team for winning the TBA Championship on August 24 at Neilson Park.

The home team needed two wins Sunday over the previously undefeated Royal York squad in order to take the trophy. In the first game, the Stingers came from behind to win in walk-off fashion in the bottom of the 7th. The second game was not as close with the Stingers winning 10-4 to become champs.

Next stop for coach Rick Greif’s team — a trip to the Provincial Championship on the Labour Day weekend. Go get ’em, boys!

Upset Win Puts Peewees in OBAs

They’re off to the Provincials! Coach Kevin Coyle’s exciting Stingers Peewee AAA team has qualified for the OBA Championship,

The squad qualified for the year’s final tournament with a dramatic walk-off win against the favoured North York team. The loss eliminated the Blues from the Provincials.

It’s been a great year for the Scarborough Peewees. Earlier this season, the team won the West Mountain Baseball Tournament in Hamilton.

Good luck to the guys at the OBA Finals in Vaughan on the Labour Day weekend.

Baby Bees Swarm Richmond Hill

The Scarborough Stingers AAA Minor Mosquito team capped a fantastic year of tournament play with a victory at the prestigious Richmond Hill Tournament.

The young Stingers dominated the tournament, going undefeated from first game through to the championship final.

Congrats to coach Darien List, his staff and all the Baby Bees for a great win!

A Star in the Making

Jabari Smith of the Scarborough Stingers Peewee AAA team was among the 275 kids getting the star treatment this summer at the Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Academy Camp.

All of the participants at the Rogers Centre worked with former big leaguers like Jesse Barfield, Candy Maldonado, Lloyd Moseby, Rance Mulliniks, Duane Ward, Devon White, Hall of Famer Roberto Alomar, and his father Sandy Alomar Sr.

The 12-year-old Smith is a lifelong fan of the Blue Jays, watching from home and at the ballpark whenever he can. Someday he hopes to take the same field as a Blue Jay and his experience with the Academy only makes him want it more.

“I come to games and watch them on TV, but it feels really good to be on the field,” he said. “I feel like a big leaguer. Being on the field is the coolest part, and it’s really nice to go in the clubhouse.  I want to be a big leaguer and play for Toronto.”

Over three fantastic weeks at Highview Park, more than 60 young ballplayers had a blast, soaking up the baseball fundamentals like sponges and sharing lots of laughs with their fellow campers and our top-notch instructors.

Thanks to each and every one one of the guys for coming out. It has been an absolute pleasure.
