Gord was one of these rare athletes who never played minor league ball.  He immediately played Men's fastball with Sanders.  He played on many teams, won many championships and was placed on many All-Star teams.  From 1976-2001, he repeatedly played in provinical and at the Westerns with teams including Sanders, Boissevain's Pringle Pirates, the City Centre Cougars, B&R Sports, the Minto Mustangs and Clanwilliam Greys.  In 1984, he was awarded MVP of the Southwest Softball League, and 1987, he had the highest batting average in the Southwest League.  Gord's skill and competitive nature made him a much sought-after and exciting player in Manitoba Softball.
