Scorekeeper and announcer at Old Municipal Stadium, then home of the PBSW Ramblers, in 1935, he was one of Arizona’s most loyal softball supporters during a career which spanned five decades. He was the Phoenix Gazette softball writer from 1937 until named sports editor in 1947. Thereafter, his popular column, “Along the Way” and Gazette sports pages, at his direction, continued to provide excellent coverage of all phases of softball, until his death in 1974. His efforts contributed greatly to Phoenix earning the title of Softball Capital of the World in the 1930s.
