Congrats to our mighty Midget squad which has qualified for the 2016 OBA provincial finals later this month. Coach Steve White’s squad conquered rain, cross-city travel and tough opponents in the TBA playoffs to finish as one of the Top Two teams in Toronto. Good luck in the OBAs, boys!
We couldn’t be prouder of how our PeeWee AAA Stingers played this season and in the TBA finals this weekend.
Stingers smilin’ after eliminating Etobicoke
This great group of kids has come a long way in a couple of years, and the players and coaches work as hard or harder than anyone in Toronto. That paid off with big wins over North York and Etobicoke, and a respectable 3rd place finish in the playoffs.
Well done, team!
“This past weekend we were in Brampton and faced off against teams from Guelph, Lasalle, Barrie and Ancaster. After slaying a couple of giants and playing the underdog part very well, I can say it was a great honour to share the the field and the uniform with this group of kids. They represented our community, families and the Stinger ball club with respect, integrity and sportsmanship. We received many compliments from our opposition, tournament officials and umps regarding our play and our class. We are proud to represent our Scarborough Stinger community.”
Rick Greif, Head Coach

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!
