Edward (Ted) Stone began his highly successful pitching career with the Oshawa Legion, Branch 43, Baseball Association in 1946. In 1953, while playing for the Oshawa Merchants of the Inter County League, Ted was scouted by the Boston Red Sox. He signed a pro contract at the end of the 1953 season and began his professional baseball career in 1954 in the Red Sox farm system. He played for the Corning, New York Red Sox Team in 1954, where his pitching record was an impressive 13-2. Ted then became the ace of the Corning Red Sox staff in 1955 posting a 13-8 record. In 1956, after a brief call up to the Carolina League the year before, he achieved 6 more wins for the Greensboro, North Carolina Patriots. Ted advanced up the ladder again to start the 1957 season in Albany, New York where he pitched mainly in relief for the Albany Senators. Overall the hard throwing right hander recorded a 33-22 record during his pro career. Ted returned home to Oshawa in 1958 to play semi-pro ball and help the Merchants. Ted began coaching baseball in Oshawa during the 1960's and coached for over 30 years in the Oshawa Minor Baseball Association. Over the years he helped mentor and teach countless young pitchers in the Oshawa system. Ted was recognized by the OLMBA as the right handed pitcher of the decade in the 1950's and coach of the decade for the 1960's while also voted the best right handed pitcher of the century. Ted was inducted into the Oshawa Sports Hall of Fame in 1996 and again in 2001 with his team mates on the 1952 Oshawa McCallum Transporters team. His #10 was officially retired in 2002.
Ted passed away suddenly at Orillia Soldiers Memorial Hospital on Tuesday, July 16, 2019 at the age of 86. He is the beloved husband of Eileen. Loving father of Terry and Mike, Doug and Diane, Jeff and Maria, Dale and Debbie and Cooper. Loved grandfather of Chad and Kari-Ann, Dana and Mike, Kelsey and Kyle, Taylor and Sydney, Brittany and Shelby. Dear great-grandfather to Alyssa, Brock, Carter, Harper and great great-grandfather to Beau. He is predeceased by his brother John Douglas Stone and his parents Bill and Margaret Stone. A visitation will be held at the MORRIS FUNERAL CHAPEL, 4 Division Street, Bowmanville on Friday, July 19, 2019 from 10 a.m. until 12 noon. A Memorial Service will be held in the MORRIS CHAPEL on Friday, July 19, 2019 at 12 noon.

Unfortunately I just found out this so very sad news 2 days ago up at Ted's former romping grounds.... the Maz.... Words cannot begin to express my sincere condolences to the entire Stone family. I had the pleasure to work at the same place as Ted and one year to actually have the pleasure to play on the same baseball team..... in which he was of course our pitcher and from that day on my most favorite.... you see it was four pitch so our pitchers pitched to us.... he always put it exactly where I wanted it and a nice addition of some speed (I was more comfortable with fast pitches because I also played fastball). Ted made it so easy to get an awesome hit every time because he put it exactly where you wanted it.... he had a wonderful sense of humour that will also be sorrily missed... one thing that I am thankful for is that I had to simple pleasure to call Ted a friend. Your memory will live on through your children and grandchildren.... :)

Ted, my friend

I didn’t know him in his days of fame in baseball but I’m sure from my observations in the accomplishments of his many projects, be it wood working, grass cutting or flower tending that he was indeed very tenacious, perfectionist and determined to succeed at whatever he initiated. What a great lad to share a drink, story or game of golf with. Never a dull moment when he was around. No doubt, St Peter will have to hear a joke before He lets him cross the threshold of the Pearly Gates. Ted never failed in expressing his love, pride and admiration for his family. We will miss him.
