As we wrap up our 2022 season, the entire Stingers organization would like to thank everyone for making the 13th season a memorable summer. 

Thank you to Stinger Nation for packing Bill Taunton Stadium for 36 parties and bringing the energy to the ballpark. We couldn’t have done it without your support of the Stingers.  We cannot wait for you to be back at the ballpark in 2023! We are grateful for our sponsors and their continous support of our mission of providing family fun entertainment for the surrounding West Central Minnesota communities. 

We cannot wait for more fun in 2023! Go Stingers!
