An umpire said to me and I quote, “His baseball IQ is off the chart”. That’s just one way to describe Irving Carter. His knowledge is well beyond his years on the diamond and he has the talent and natural instincts to support such a statement. Irv has a well above-average arm, to go along with the power, discipline and bat speed he demonstrates at the plate. The consummate team player this young man from the Miami area is a natural born leader who can exhibit his talent at many different positions. He is overwhelmingly humble, gracious and thankful to those whom he meets and to those whom have helped him along the way. A true student of the game and someone who has a very bright future within the game of baseball.

Gordie Hershiser, Head Coach of the Team Chandler 13 Prospect Team


 

This kid is not just a great ballplayer but a great kid over all.  Ever since I first met Irv you can see his talent but it was the way he learned from his mistakes and how he would listen to what I had to say and digest it and put it into use.  I train alot of college guys and pro guys and let me tell you some of those guys have a hard time doing that. .. I’m glad he’s getting the exposure he deserves. As a player kid just wants to play, outstanding catching ability from catching and throwing to calling a game. High baseball IQ. Nice smooth swing with good opposite field pop. Very strong hands and one hell of an arm. In all I’m very glad that he’s getting recognized for his hard work and determination.  Great kid. I hope this can help but soon you’ll see what I mean about Mr. Carter, he’s a joy to be around.

Teen baseball player struck, killed by train in Delray Beach

A 16-year-old baseball player was struck and killed by a train Tuesday, police said, and they think he didn’t hear it coming because he was wearing headphones.

Jesus Villalobos was walking north along the Florida East Coast Railway tracks, which run roughly parallel to Federal Highway, just after 2 p.m. when he was hit by a northbound train. Delray Beach police said the train engineer saw him walking on the tracks and sounded the horn repeatedly, but was unable to stop.

Because Villalobos was wearing headphones in at the time of the crash, police suspect he didn’t hear the approaching train or the horn.

Officers said Villalobos was a student at Elev8 Sports Institute, a boarding school at 490 Dotterel Roadfocusing on student athletes.

Villalobos is from Colombia and played on the school’s baseball team. Police say he might have been walking toward a local gym when the train struck him.

Officials from the institute declined comment Wednesday, citing the family’s privacy.
