After years and years of giving signs to his baseball players, Mike Carver recognized a sign when it came his way.

Carver said for the past few years he had been mulling over whether to hang up his cleats as Southold High School’s baseball coach. When a doctor told him he needed both of his kneecaps replaced, that ultimately made the decision for him. READ
