In baseball, he was a member of the Ontario bantam championship club of 1929. He played first base on senior clubs of renown, the 1938 team reaching the Ontario finals.

As a basketball player, Cadd was All-City in 1931, 1932 and 1933. He also starred on the first Peterborough box lacrosse team that went to Ontario finals. Cliff played City League softball, football and Jr. A hockey in the 1930s.

“I played sports 12 months of the year,” recalls Cliff, “and enjoyed it a great deal.” So did the fans who watched him excel over the years.
