John’s story

Sports and so much more...

John lived most of his childhood in Darien, CT and enjoyed the richness of grandparents

living nearby, along with aunts and uncles.  Baseball was a huge part of his life from a

very young age, and he continued to play through high school. 


John attended Norwalk Community College where he played baseball it was during that time that he met Carol.  They dated for just over a year before being married in December of 1981.           In the years following, John managed the produce department at the gourmet good store, Hayday, in Westport, CT before he was hired by Burndy Corporation (later known as Framatome) and was transferred to Manchester, New Hampshire.  The family enjoyed an idyllic life growing up in the quiet New Hampshire countryside.  John spent a great deal of time skiing, playing baseball and biking with the children during those years.    Emily’s early acceptance to Yale in 2002 prompted the family to consider a move back to Connecticut and in July they found themselves moving into a fixer upper in New Haven.  Many months of hardship followed, including living without a kitchen for 6 months, but the family now has a lovely home renovated for their unique family.         John founded an AAU baseball team called the New Haven Knights in 2011 and is the head coach.  They have won several division titles and the Taubl boys have all enjoyed playing for the team.         John travels to Haiti with the family on a regular basis.  One highlight was in the summer of 2013 when John held an afternoon baseball clinic for the street children in Haiti.  The language barrier was daunting, even with translators, but the enthusiasm and adventurous spirits of the children made the experience spectacular.
