Donors Hall of Fame


'The Triple Crown in Greatness might best describe Tim Carroll. This 3-sport high school star from Colorado came to Nebraska to play baseball for Coach Sanders and became All-Big-8 as a player. He was the first Afro-American in Husker baseball history to receive a baseball grant-in-aid. He more than earned his way by becoming a first team All-Academic All American, in addition to his outstanding performance on the diamond. He was signed to a pro contract with the Chicago Cubs by the famous scout/player/Hall of Famer, Buck O'Neal, and later played professionally in the Chicago White Sox organization. Tim played several seasons with the Beatrice Bruins and was named to the NBC All-American Team after an outstanding tournament in Wichita. This outstanding young man touched many lives while serving as a school administrator in the Lincoln Public School system. Unfortunately, Tim was 'called to the Bigs' several years ago in an automobile accident. The letters of testimonial and recommendations of his coaches, peers and teammates were overwhelming and attest that he is a truly worthy addition to the Nebraska Baseball HOF.
