Carroll Stadium Records

Assuming you know that Indianapolis' Michael A. Carroll Stadium may get the wrecking ball, you might be curious about the stadium records. I've compiled them in a Google doc.

Note that this was the site of the two biggest World Record screw-ups in the last 30 years: FloJo's 10.49 100 meters and Carl Lewis' 30' 2" (9.19m) long jump. The former should never have been approved, as the wind reading was somehow in error. The latter was called a hairline foul but wasn't (T&FN spent 18 column inches explaining why), and the pit was raked before any protest could be made. We're saddled with one unbreakable WR and lost out on another.
