Carroll family united by baseball
Through triumph and tragedy, family stuck together
CLEVELAND -- Larry Carroll worked the midnight shift at the Alcoa aluminum plant in Evansville, Ind., so that he could coach his sons' baseball teams in the evening.Carroll coached for 18 years. He coached his eldest son Jason's team, and Jason went on to own his own insurance company. He coached his youngest son Wes' team, and Wes is now an assistant baseball coach at the University of Evansville. But because of the overlap in ages of his three boys, he didn't do much coaching for his middle son Jamey's teams. And Jamey, of course, is now a Major Leaguer, serving as an infielder for the Indians.
