From the Kenmore Blues where he recorded a 21-1 record, Bob duplicated that feat at Kenmore Kigh and led Cardinals to first ever City Title in 1938, defeating Central, 1-0, in eight innings. That senior season he began a successful trek into A ball with Simpson Market and then had winning seasons with Moore’s Wrestlers and Goodrich. The strong right-hander was drafted by Killian Celtics for the ’39 NABF Tourney. Signed with the Yankees in 1940, pitched Butler to Penn State League Title with three playoff wins, a 16-5 record, and made the All-Star team.
