Four state championships, 24 state tournaments and 10 regional tournaments were included in his 16-year career in which he set enviable records as a pitcher and batter. Virtually every pitching and hitting record at the Phoenix University Park was his, including a strikeout average of nine per 7-inning game, a batting average of .341 and the league’s home run championship each year. In Phoenix Major League competition, he advanced with Arizona teams to five national tournaments - in Phoenix; Greeley, Colo.; and Chicago. In the national All-Service championship in 1944, he struck out 46 batters in 23 innings.
