On August 3, 2013, 17-year-old Quinn Stevenson was killed in a head-on collision between two vehicles on a college drive in Saskatoon on her way to work. The driver of the other vehicle pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated.

“No one should forget how Quinn was killed, he was killed by a disabled driver, it’s a completely preventable death,” said Bonnie Stevenson, mother.

“We have teams from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, mostly teams from Saskatchewan. We all had a great weekend together enjoying some matches and celebrating our son Quinn’s life,” said Craig Stevenson, father.

Every year after the crash, the baseball tournament offers an opportunity to remember and celebrate the life of the Queens.

“It started in 2014, and it’s been hosted since 2021, 2020, since the Govt regulations do not allow us to host it,” Craig said.
