    I grew up with Dave and went to school with him. We played a lot of baseball together. He was my catcher and he was good. Never wanted me to throw breaking balls only fastballs. We sure had a lot of fun together and won a lot more than we lost. RIP CARP, We will miss you but not forget you my friend!! balls only the fastball
