In one particular span of dominance from 1995-2006, he played in only 9 of those 12 years and won the City League Championship all 9 years. He has an impressive list of league awards – regular season MVP’s, play-off MVP’s, batting average awards and the Dave Leether “Mr. Softball” Memorial Award. In league play of other cities; Cobourg, Oshawa, East York – he won their league championships 8 times.
