Year Inducted – 1997

Another outstanding Barberton athlete is being honored by the GABHOF for his accomplishments. Carl played with several youth teams before becoming a star outfielder for the Magics. He was one of coach Les Scarr’s classic examples of a complete ball player. He could hit, run, throw, and field far in excess of most high schoolers. He earned four letters, was team captain two years and led the team in hitting and RBIs. His play attracted the attention of Ohio University recruiters who provided him a baseball scholarship. Carl’s play earned him unanimous All-MAC Player of the Year honors as a sophomore. Following his college career he played in the AA League with the Farber Clothiers, Akron Orphans and Smith Sheriffs. He played a large part in helping those teams win eight championships. As a result he was voted on five All-Star teams. This honor unites Carl with his brother Bob who was inducted in 1995. They are the 12th pair of brothers inducted in the Hall of Fame.
