A double shot of Mike Carlson, Krusi Colt and one of the nicest guys you ever had the chance to play with. But don’t let Mike’s pleasant demeanor fool you. He was a fierce competitor on the diamond or hard court who never gave up and always brought hustle.
Like so many of the Krusi park rats of his generation, he went on to work for the ARPD as a park director. “Carl” also played NCAA Div I Men’s Volleyball in college.
By the way… Mike and his Krusi Little Coast team won the game 10-3 over the Woodstock Dolphins. Carlson struck out seven and added a double on this summer day in 1973.
