Cliff Bishop pitched for Manitoba in every Canadian Senior Men’s Fast Pitch Championship from 1976 to 1990. Since then he has represented the province at both the senior and masters levels. He was a member of Canada’s national team in 1979-80 and a highlight of his career came when the team won gold in the 1979 Pan Am Games. A strong batter who often was used as a designated hitter when he wasn’t pitching, Bishop rates with the best players produced in Manitoba over the past 30 years. He was inducted into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame in 1998 and the Softball Canada Hall of Fame in 2003 in recognition of his lengthy softball accomplishments.
