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.

In the words of former PMCSL President Brian McFadden, “Other teams know they have to beat him to win the league.  He doesn’t know how to spell the word lose.”  Wayne has a record that will be hard to beat.
