After moving from Toronto Steven Price quickly became a multisport athlete at Sydenham High School before focusing on the sport of fastball.

A powerful, hard throwing left-handed pitcher and an accomplished hitter Steven has been described as a “big game player” that was at his best when the team needed him the most, as witnessed with his performance on the international stage with Team Canada winning the International Softball Congress (ISC) World Championship in 1993, and Pan Am Games gold medals in 1995 and 1999.

Steven competed locally, across Canada and in the United States over his career before a coach in upstate New York.

From 1981 to 1999, Steven was a top performer on the mound and at the plate, he won Ontario Softball Championships with the Verona Merchants from 1981-83, before leading Perth Road to the Loughborough League Fastball Championship in 1984. He won another Ontario Championship with the Merchants in 1986 before the nomadic travels of a power pitcher began for Steven. He led the Newfoundland Greensleeves to a bronze medal at the Canadian Championships in 1989, and the Kemptville Thunder to the Provincial Sr A Men’s Championship in 1992. He joined the Toronto Gaiters in 1993, where he led them to the gold medal in the ISC World Championships. In the final, Steven hit a pinch hit double in the seventh inning and scoring the winning run.

In 1995 Steven rejoined the Greensleeves at the Canadian Fastpitch Championships, winning silver with a 1.02 ERA and batting .474. The next year, Steven won the Canadian Men’s Fast Pitch Championship with the Port Coquitlam Rafters from B.C, before winning the ISC World Championship in 1998 with the Heflin Builders. In that tournament, Steven was the tournament MVP and set a record for runs batted in with 15, with five homeruns in five games while hitting .563. He was named First Team All-World as a designated-hitter in the tournament. He won a gold medal at the Pan Am games with Team Canada in 1999 before continuing his career as coach and mentor to young athletes.

Steven has won five area and Ontario championships, gold, silver and bronze medals at Canadian championships and four gold medals and a silver medal on the international diamonds.
