The Scouting Report

The Scorpions sat just one point away from first place in the NASL standings before they finished the spring portion of the 2013 season. For the summer break, rather than joining other teams in bicycle-kicking water balloons at passing cars, the team is sharpening its skills during several friendly matches, including against the Mexican-based Dorados De Sinaloa.

A year ago, the two teams met in Stockton, California for a pre-season scrimmage. Propelled by a pair of goals by forward Hans Denissen, the Scorpions surged to a 3–0 victory in that game. On July 20, the Dorados return to the States for a rematch in Toyota Field, but they might yet again feel the sting of Denissen, who currently sits tied for the NASL lead with eight goals this preseason.

San Antonio Scorpions

Founded in 2010, the San Antonio Scorpions wasted no time digging their pincers into the North American Soccer League standings; in 2012, they finished first overall and advanced to the semi-finals. Yet despite their quick success on the pitch, the Scorpions have arguably made a bigger impact off of it: all profits from the team's operations go toward funding Morgan's Wonderland, a colorful amusement park in Longhorn Quarry designed for people with (and without) special needs. The idea stems from team owner, businessman, and philanthropist Gordon Hartman, who builds support for Morgan's Wonderland via the Scorpions' "Soccer for a Cause" program. In 2012, the team's efforts were noticed by Toyota, who committed to sponsoring a new stadium. Completed for the 2013 season, the result of that commitment currently boasts a seating capacity of 8,000 with plans to expand as large as 18,000, so long as fan support continues to grow enough and the chair saplings take root in the concrete.
