The Scouting Report
As the Scorpions dribble deeper into their fall season, forward Omar Cummings appears to be getting stronger with each passing match. The 33-year-old veteran, who led the Colorado Rapids to an MLS Cup in 2010, currently leads the NASL in goals with eight. Two of those scores came during a July 11 victory over the Tampa Bay Rowdies, a feat that earned him player of the week honors. On July 25, Cummings will take aim at Minnesota United FC during a Saturday night showdown at Toyota Field. These two squads met earlier this season on April 25, when their clash ended in a 2–2 draw.
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. Two years later, they claimed their first league championship. 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.
