Carl Suverkrop joins the 2017 campaign for the new Dallas Spirits Open (18+) squad and brings with him some international experience both on and off the field. Suverkrop is from Durban, South Africa. The city is the third largest city in South Africa, located along the East coast.
Carl moved to Texas in November of 2015 and currently resides in the Mid-Cities. He met his wife Dayna in 2012 when he visited the U.S. for a friend’s wedding. The two exchanged visits for almost three and a half years before Carl was able to move to the U.S. He married Dayna in January, 2016. The couple has 3 kids and a very close extended family in which they spend a great deal of time; especially out at Lake PK.
Suverkrop didn’t have the opportunity to play high school baseball in South Africa as it wasn’t an option, however he represented his Province of Kwa-Zulu Natal throughout his high school days by playing in national tournaments.
Carl will assist the Open team playing outfield, as well as stints within the infield at third base and short stop.
