Chucky was a major league hot dog for the Marlins. They were terrible, but he was entertaining.

I was a big Chuck Carr fan back in the day. I have recently come back to baseball, after 94 strike. I can hardly watch baseball without a favorite player because it is rare that I have a favorite team any more. I feel lucky to have seen what can be done so well by Chuck Carr in center field and I'm sad that I can't see him play any more. In my book you're still the best, Chuck.

My son is on Chuck's Pop-Warner team in Arizona. The way it looks right now you will be seeing his kid play ball in about ten years or so.

I was at the World Series game where Tommie Agee made the catches and of course have seen it many, many times on tape. Shinjo has made some marvelous catches (though I do think he sometimes misjudges the ball), and I have seen Mookie and Dykstra make many athletic plays. THE greatest play I have ever seen a Mets centerfielder make was by this guy. Sort of like the Willie Mays catch and one Shinjo made but sliding and hitting the wall when he reached the ball.

The Mets have had a few of these guys over the years -- fast as hell, but can't hit. Esix Snead is a more contemporary version.

One of the game's great quotes came from Mr. Carr when he was with Milwaukee in 1997.

May 16: Carr (batting a robust .130 at the time) gets the take sign with the count in his favor. Instead, he pops up. His response later -- "That ain't Chuckie's game. Chuckie hacks on 2 and 0!"

May 20: Brewers grant Chuckie free agency.

I loved watching Chuck play when he was on the Marlins. He loved the game and the fans. He had the wickedest drag bunt that was very successful. When he reached first, he was so fast that you'd know the steal was coming and you flaunted that fact against the battery. Thanks for the memories Chuck, I still have his autographed Photo-ball in my trophy case.

Went to go see the Tides in Syracuse around '92. He was hitting on my Dad's girlfriend big time. Nonetheless a class act and I always rooted for him. I had a soft spot for those Tides!

Chuck was on a little league team called the Bears with my younger brother in Fontana, CA years ago. I think they were around 12 years old at the time. Believe it or not, Chuckie was SHY!!!! He rarely ever said much at all. His dad was at every single game and was equally quiet. Chuckie was so little, too! Amazing how they change......

I knew him in his days of living in Tucson, AZ. I hung out at his house, played RBI on Nintendo, and waited for his wife or girlfriend to come home and bring me laffy taffy haha! I was just thinking about him for some strange reason. He was very well respected and I never even saw him as a "ball player."

March 27, 2008
Chuckie was our neighbor in Mesa, AZ and was very friendly and respectful. He and my husband could talk baseball hours on end and Chuckie used to get a kick out of hearing how baseball was "in the olden times." I wish him all good luck in whatever he does.

Chuck Carr: What a Great Guy! One of the best memories of all was Chuck taking time out and walking the kids down to the baseball field and playing ball in Mesa. Does anyone know what happened to Chuck? Last notes I see are 2003. Anything recent? 2007? 2008?

Truly an electrifying underdog. Great Marlin. Couldn't hit a lick, though.

You know, this fellow lived in Tucson at one point when I was a kid. I used to hang out at his place playing RBI on Nintendo. I was a huge baseball fan then, but I never looked at him as a baseball player. He was an extremely kind and kid friendly individual. His girlfriend/wife would bring me back Laffy Taffy, etc.

I never asked for an autograph or proof or anything that I would hang out there. He is/was a stand up guy. This was back in the eighties. Hell, I don't even remember what team he was playing with when he showed me his baseball card. Hah!

Just decided to look him up today and see what he has been up to these last couple of decades.

This guy is one of my best friends. He's doin well doin what he loves best, teaching and sharing the game of baseball with kids. Humble man, doesn't flaunt himself but he'll spare a moment for a fan of the game any day. Big family man too, he'll talk all day about his kids, proud father. And yes, Chuckie still hacks on 2-0!
