He was signed by the Tigers in 1906 to play in the Ohio League championship against the Canton Bulldogs in a two-game series. Massillon would go on to lose the first game of the series, 10–5, but won the second game (and the championship) by a score of 13–6 and clinched the 1906 league championship.
