He was proficient in swimming, roller skating and ice skating, and presented countless exhibition in these sports for a number of years, but he also attained considerable prominence throughout this entire area as a baseball player. His versatility was demonstrated in that sport, too, as he first won acclaim as a strong-armed pitcher \emdash a right hander \emdash and in later years played the outfield for local area semi-pro teams for some years while distinguishing himself as a robust batter. He first played with an Avon team, but promptly joined the Newmanstown club as its mound ace in 1906 and held forth with the Maroons for several years. He next played with the Lebanon Post Office team managed by the late Chal Morgal to the Lebanon County championship in 1911. It was customary for prominent ballplayers to play with several teams in those days, and during his heyday, the onetime prominent local athlete wore the uniforms of Palmyra, the famed Lebanon Golden Bucks, Richland, the Burns A. C., Lebanon County champions in 1919. His diamond career also included a brief fling with the Tower City team in the Williams Valley League. Early in his baseball career he played with the C and L team made up of Cornwall and Lebanon Railroad employes, and through that association began the long, continuous and creditable period of employment that concluded with his retirement.
