Carey Ashton was born in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia in 1959 and moved to Montreal when he was 5 years old. At the age of 7 he was diagnosed with FSH Muscular Dystrophy and has used the aid of a wheelchair to get around since he was nineteen years old.

Carey has an exceptional knowledge of all sports, especially baseball, football & hockey, and has used his talents as an inspirational leader and communicator by coaching baseball for the past 15 years for the NDG Minor Baseball Association. In 2001, he became a head coach in the competitive Lynx program. Since 2004, his teams have won six provincial titles, and they have represented Quebec six times at Little League National Championships. In 2004, his Major team lost in the national finals, one game away from representing Canada at the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

Carey and one of his assistant coaches, Jan Sauvé-Frankel, spent a year making an eighty minute movie documenting their teams journey during the 2004 season. The movie, "It's All About the Team" will be upload to Youtube shortly.

In 2002, Carey joined the staff of the McGill Redbirds of the Canadian Intercollegiate Baseball Association (CIBA) as a bench coach. In 2006 the Redbirds won their first CIBA National Championship.

At the annual  Laureats Sportifs CDN/NDG which recognizes amateur athletic achievement in our community, Carey's teams have won three, "The Team of the Year" awards and he himself has won "Coach of the Year Award" twice.

With the NDG Baseball association, Carey has been named "Coach of the Year" five times, has won the Bill Hurst Volunteer of the Year (2001), has been awarded the President's Award several times for his continuous effort, and was the recipient of NDG Baseball’s Lionel Geller Award of Excellence (2008), for outstanding service. Carey, to date,  is the only individual to have ever won every award NDG Baseball can bestow upon a volunteer. 

In 2007, Montreal radio station 990 AM The Team, named Carey the "Community Unsung Hero of the Year". Carey's record as a head coach of a competitive team from 2001 to 2010 is 305-86-4.
