He started his career in 1998 with the Bayou Bullfrogs of the Texas-Louisiana League, then from 2001 to 2008, he played with Winnipeg in the Northern League. He was a very consistent hitter, always batting between .263 and .283, except in 2006 when his average was .225. He had four seasons in which he hit 14 doubles, and one with 15. He played mainly shortstop, with the occasional game at second base or on the mound and was a four-time All-Star. Winnipeg retired his uniform number after his departure.
