The outfield wall at Mike Carps high school measures 36 feet tall, and is 440 feet from home plate in dead-center. Yet the first baseman still managed 11 homers in his high school career breaking a school record held by current Diamondback Damion Easley.
He hit some bombs in his days with us, said prep coach Spud ONeil about Carp, the Mets ninth-round pick in 2004 from Lakewood (Calif.) High School.
