Binscarth was perennial champions in the North West League and won the provincial senior B crowns in 1969-70-71.

In 1972 the Orioles moved to the Manitoba Senior League which they won with a 16-4 pennant record and the provicial senior A title. In 1973 Binscarth won the M.S.B.L. pennant, Binscarth played in many big Western Canada tournaments (Regina Langenberg, Moose Jaw, Melville, Saskatoon, Saltcoats, Lacombe Alberta).

Garth Neville who also played with Team Canada, was their main pitcher but the Orioles combined youth, speed, great defense and stong hitting.

Although American imports were not used by the Orioles then, manager Bob Wasslen was a good recruiter.
