The ideal leadoff hitter, he annually led his teams in hits, stolen bases and runs scored during a 10-year career in Arizona major league softball. A left-handed batter, he was a master of the drag bunt and choppers through the infield and contributed to the success of several Phoenix teams, including Fike Plumbers and Double 7 Corporation. Always a high-average hitter, he posted a sensational .474 batting average in the National Softball Congress national tournaments in Salt Lake City. He also was one of the truly great fielding outfielders whose speed and softball savvy turned many potential extra-base hits into routine outs.
