How Many Professional Sports Teams Are In Toronto?
There are 5 major professional sports teams in Toronto, including the 33 championships have been won between the 5 teams, making Toronto a great sports city.
Toronto does have the Arrows, a Major League Rubgy squad, as well as the Rock, a National Lacrosse League team, and, the Six, a National Women's Hockey League club.
Which teams are they and in what sport(s)?
Toronto Blue Jays
We're just gonna leave this video right here for ya, Blue Jays fans.
Ok, we good? Good.
The Toronto Blue Jays arrived in Major League Baseball in 1977 and won back-to-back titles in 1992 and 1993, with the Atlanta Braves serving as their opponent in '92 and the Phillies, led by Curt Schilling, in '93.
And that, friends, serves as the entirety of their popular relevance. Sure, they've made the playoffs a a handful of other times, but what do you expect when you go up against the most victorious team in pro sports, the New York Yankees, 19 times per season?
Toronto Maple Leafs
Owners of gorgeous sweaters that feature the National Symbol of Canada, the Maple Leafs are an Original Six NHL club. Victory-less since the expansion of the league in '67, the Leafs have not found the success that they were accustomed to in the early days of pro hockey - which is tough, since Hockey is a National Sport of Canada.
Maybe the squad needs to take a trip down to Letterkenny and get themselves a few puppers beers.
Some of the esteemed players that have come through include Mats Sundin, Doug Gilmour, Wendel Clark, Tim Horton, and ol' King Clancy.
And, if you're wondering, yes, THAT Tim Horton.
The Raptors were founded in the mid '90s. So, probably just in time to be included in NBA Jam 2. Or NBA Street. Or whatever it was called. Whatever it was, Tracy McGrady was unstoppable.
NBA Legend Isiah Thomas was the first team GM. Hall of Famer Hakeen Olajuwon played on the squad. Same with recently inducted Chris Bosh.
In more recent years, the Raptors have been racking up Division titles with no hardware to show for it. That ended with a 2019 NBA Title run that was punctuated by a Kawhi Leonard Finals MVP trophy.
Toronto FC was founded in 2005 and joined MLS in 2007. Not really much to discuss beyond the club being the first Canadian team in the league.
Unlike the soccer team, The Argos have been around for nearly a century and a half. They have won the Grey Cup 17 times out of a possible 22. That is a rock solid winning percentage, along with no small sample size.
To wrap it all up, those are your Toronto Pro Sports teams.
