Reg Underwood was one of the greatest outfielders to play the game of softball. In 1976 he was awarded the Tom Longboat Award as top male First Nations athlete in all of Canada. Reggie played for arguably the world's best men's softball team in the world and from 1974 to 1984 he roamed the outfield making tough catches look routine. His team, the Victoria Bates, won 10 Provincial Championships, 6 National Championships, the 1976 World Championship, and the 1979 Pan Am Games Gold medal. He made the all-star team at National tournaments in 1976, 1981, 82 and 1983. His career batting average was over 300 and he continued to excel in the game at the masters level leading his team to 2 senior B Provincials, 2 Masters Provincials and 3 Western Canadian Masters championships. As well, Reggie was instrumental in helping young players improve their skills of the game.
