As the American Hockey League affiliate of the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Toronto Marlies take to the ice with a roster of young skaters on their way to an NHL career. Named after a legendary (but since dissolved) Junior A team, the Toronto Marlboros, the Marlies have had their share of success since their move to the city in 2005, including a 2011–2012 campaign in which they captured the Western Conference title and nearly hoisted the league's hallowed Calder Cup. Crowds of up to 8,200 fans cheer the Marlies on from their home at Ricoh Coliseum, where team mascot Duke the Dog—his own name an homage to the Duke of Marlborough—dances in the stands.

Longtime OHL coach Stan Butler is on his way to leading the Brampton Battalion to a tenth consecutive trip to the playoffs.

The Hamilton Thunderbirds, a shining star in the 92-year-old Intercounty Baseball League's galaxy, electrify baseball fans with a slate of matches against teams sourced from all corners of Ontario. The Thunderbirds, led by batting ace Chris Piano, take on the league-leading Barrie Baycats on May 29 and the second-place Brantford Red Sox on June 26, seeking to best their vaunted opponents in fielding, pitching, hitting, and downward-facing-dog poses. TBird Family Day Packs provide nine innings' worth of diversion for two adults and two children at the recently renovated, 2,700-seat Bernie Arbour Memorial Stadium. While cheering on the diamond's denizens or practicing astral projection, groups can split four ballpark hot dogs and four drinks between them.
