Pitcher
Steve was a Pioneer workhorse on the mound in the early years of the team right through to the 2003 elimination title run.  Whenever there was a big game for the Pioneers, Steve was on the mound.  He was  a mentor for the young guys that joined the team, always lending an ear and guys picking his mind about the game.  His competitive fire and craftiness on the mound helped the team to many wins and helped to establish the team as a place to play senior baseball.
