Marietta’s center fielder and a member of the starting rotation on the mound, Carson posted one of the best seasons in the Division III for a two-way player. He started all 50 games and batted .419 with 21 doubles, two triples, 12 home runs and 58 RBI. He was also second in the NCAA with 88 hits, third in total bases with 151, and tenth in doubles with 21.
On the mound Carson was 5-2 with two saves and an Ohio Athletic Conference best 1.87 earned run average. He pitched in 14 games making seven starts. Carson struck out 65 batters in 53 innings pitched while holding opposing hitters to a paltry .196 batting average. His 11.04 strikeouts per nine innings was third-best in the conference.
Carson’s list of honors from the 2023 season is quite extensive. In addition to the two All-America honors, he was named the Player of the Year in the OAC and in Region VII by both and the ABCA. Carson earned first team All-OAC and All-Region and was named the Most Valuable Player of the NCAA Regional Tournament.
