Brighton High School field to be dedicated in honor of Mark Carrow

There’s going to be a reunion of Brighton baseball players from around the country on Saturday and all for a good reason.

Brighton’s baseball field has changed its physical location several times since Mark Carrow began coaching the Bulldogs back in 1973. But the current location is going to be dedicated as Carrow Field in a ceremony scheduled to take place before a scheduled doubleheader with Ypsilanti Lincoln.

Carrow coached the Bulldog from 1973 to 2006 before retiring, and he, along with former players, will be there for Saturday’s dedication.

Carrow says he’s thrilled with the honor.

“I mean this from the bottom of my heart, although I will have my name up there, it certainly should be dedicated to all the ball players that I had, because without them, this never would happen,” he said. “And that’s from the kid who only got up to bat five times in his career to the Drew Hensons as the national player. They all did something to make this happen.”

Carrow won 823 games with the Bulldogs, which is eighth all time in the state of Michigan. His teams included two Mr. Baseball honorees, more than a dozen all-state selections, and the Bulldogs made two trips to the class A semi-finals during his tenure.

The dedication ceremony is scheduled to begin at 10:45 a.m. on Saturday at the field, before the first game of that doubleheader, which is set for 11:00 a.m. in case of rain.

The dedication will be held in the STEAM Center next to the baseball field.
