HOW IT ALL STARTED!
Founded in 1954 by Ben Cheney of Cheney Lumber Company in Tacoma, the Seattle Tacoma Cheney Studs are one of the most tenured amateur baseball organizations in the country. The Studs in 2013 will compete in Northwest Baseball for the 59thconsecutive year. More than 100 former and active professional baseball players have donned the Seattle Tacoma Cheney Studs uniform. The Studs traditionally participate in tournaments in Kelowna, B.C., Kamloops, B.C. The National Baseball Congress World Series in Wichita, KS and the Grand Forks International Tournament in British Columbia. In 2008 and 2010 the Seattle Tacoma Cheney Studs finished 2nd in the NBC World Series in Wichita, Kansas, the highest finishes ever for the Studs. The Seattle Tacoma Cheney Studs team tradition for 57 years has been a mix of current college players with ex-professional players making us an experienced baseball team that competes hard in every game and is very entertaining to watch and follow.
ONCE A STUD, ALWAYS A STUD!
