Considered Arizona Softball’s greatest catcher, he was three times an All-American selection in national championship tournaments. He was blessed with one of the game’s strongest quickest and most accurate throwing arms and rarely, indeed, were there base stealing attempts against him. Also an outstanding hitter, he starred for the 1938 national champion Lettuce Kings of Phoenix and competed in a total of six national tournaments. Umpires at the 1937 nationals in Chicago called him the best catcher they had ever seen. He also caught for Fannin’s Hardware and Tom’s Tavern in pre-war years and in 1946-1948 was player-manager for Arizona championship teams
