Year: 2017
Team: Baseball

Carmody was a four year standout under legendary head coach Joe Zavattaro.  The Nahant, MA native became a starter the moment he stepped on campus.  He became an instant threat in the middle of the NASC lineup.  Carmody's career took off during his junior season.  In 1987, he batted .371 with 8 HR's, 37 RBI's, and 38 runs.  He led the team back into the NCAA tournament, his third consecutive appearance, and was also a contributor off the mound.  He was named All New England after his impressive campaign.

Carmody didn't slow down as a senior as he batted .405 and smacked 13 HR's while driving in 42 runs.  He would score 45 times during the season.  

During his time at NA, along with his successful college baseball career, Kevin met many friends that have remained his best for all these years.  His ultimate highlight, however, came in June of 1988. 

Kevin was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 25th round of the MLB June Draft. Over the next couple of years, Kevin played professionally in Arizona, Wisconsin and California, winning 2 championships and subsequently earning 2 rings.  

One of Kevin's most memorable moments during that time was facing and striking out Ken Griffey Jr., a story that has been repeated so many times over the years. Kevin was traded in 1991 to the New York Mets and after suffering an elbow injury decided to end that chapter of his life.

In 1992, Kevin married Kristin, with whom he has shared 25 years of marriage. In 1995, Kevin and Kristin welcomed their son, Corey Joseph, who just graduated from Merrimack College with a Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training. Corey is currently serving as an Athletic Trainer with the baseball team at Auburn University.

In 1998, Kevin and Kristin's daughter, Casey Marie, was born. Casey is currently in her sophomore year at Merrimack College, studying education.

Kevin started working in various aspects of construction in the early 90's and has worked as a Union Laborer for the last 25 years. Kevin is known among his peers as the "go-to" person for many things and is highly regarded in the workplace. Along with Kristin, Corey and Casey, Kevin's biggest fans have always been his parents, June and Joe Carmody. Kevin's parents were always a huge part of everything he did along the way and continue to be.
