An outstanding player who competed in three national tournaments, he became a successful manager and administrator. As state and metro ASA Commissioner, his efforts have greatly advanced Arizona softball on the national level. With the Coolidge Boosters (1955-1961) he played in national tournaments in Phoenix, Tulsa and Plainview, Texas. He turned to managing when a knee injury ended his playing career in 1960. Among his clubs were Sports Club of America and Arizona Turquoise Kings, a national power during the 1970s. He served two 2-year terms as National ASA Vice President, was Chairman of several committees, including rules, national tournaments and conventions. He was responsible for two national women’s championships played in Tucson and brought the ASA convention to Tucson in 1968.
