2010- Noel is a married father of one bouncing baby boy. After years of playing girls slow-pitch he has finally decided to return to the big boy diamond. In the fall of '91 he had 11 catches for 103 yards and 4 solo tackles for a 1-8 Tiger football team. It was a freak gridiron injury that robbed him of all but one at bat that spring. With a cast on his left hand, he was relegated to a defense only role that season. He did throw 5 innings that year, in which he allowed 6 hits while striking out 2 with no walks. This Season Noel will call upon his Stadium High School and Red Robin pedigree while he rehabilitates himself from a shoulder surgery in early 2009. His defensive skill set and fundamentals make him a highly sought after commodity. Carlson immediately improves one of the Bad Boys biggest weaknesses of '09- infield defense.
