The Scarborough Stingers are the 2016 AAA Mosquito champs!
The boys won a thrilling 1-0 game in the final game Sunday to win the title and cap a fantastic season of Stingers baseball in the Toronto Baseball Association. Next up for Coach List’s team – the OBA championship on the Labour Day weekend.
Four other Stingers teams have joined the Mosquitos in qualifying to play in their respective provincial championships.
Congratulations to our Minor Bantam, Bantam, Minor Midget and Midget teams and good luck in the final playoffs of the 2016 season.
The Scarborough Stingers will field rep teams at all age groups in 2017 – including Minor Rookie Ball – and will look to add Tier 2 teams at Minor Mosquito, Mosquito and Minor Bantam. The Stingers will also have a competitive team in the OBA’s Bantam Elite League.
The tryout times, locations and contact information for all teams are listed here. Check regularly for schedule changes or additional tryouts.

The Stingers are proud to offer players of all ages an exceptional development program that focuses on fun and fundamentals in a competitive rep baseball environment. Our program includes off-season work with top instructors and fully certified coaches.
All baseball seasons come to an end at some point. But none are more meaningful than the last game in the Junior schedule. That’s when we say good-bye to guys who have played their last game in a Stingers uniform, and some who have worn the Black & Gold for 10-12 years. The Stingers Club thanks these players and parents for their years of participation, dedication and sportsmanship.
One graduating Junior, Patrick Orr, just wrapped up his 13th straight year with the Stingers. That’s a record and a fantastic honour for a great guy and excellent ball player.
Thanks for your 13 years, Patty
Congrats to the Scarborough Stingers Major Mosquito for winning the Richmond Hill Tournament for the second year in a row! The tournament had 16 teams participating and after a 3 game round robin, the Stingers beat the Mississauga Majors in the quarter finals, Newmarket in the semis and Aurora in the finals to win the championship again.
These young Stingers also won a tournament earlier in the year in Hamilton.
Next up for coach Darien List and his No. 1 ranked Mosquito Stingers: the TBA city playoffs. Best of luck, guys!
Three cheers for Scarborough baseball
It was a wickedly hot but fabulously fun four weeks of summer baseball camps in Scarborough. Held at Highview Park and Neilson Park, the camps featured a full-day focus on fundamental skills while never losing sight of the fact that baseball is a kid’s game. And a good time was had by all, including our excellent camp instructors.
We’re already looking forward to Summer Camps 2017!
