In the early 70's Butch helped Coach Dugan build a nationally recognized baseball program. In 1971 Butch was named to the NAIA All-American second team. In 1972 he became the first Lipscomb baseball player to be named first-team All-American, an honor which he achieved again in 1973. He was on the 1971 and 1972 teams that finished second both years in the World Series, the first NAIA teams ever to accomplish this feat on their first two appearances. Butch holds the school records for lowest season (0.91) and the most strikeouts in a season (196). He went on to play professional baseball in the Chicago White Sox organization.
