Gary Carter passes away

  • Sharebar

Sorry I couldn’t post this earlier…

Baseball lost a great man and a true hero to many Mets and Expos fans around the country today. Gary Carter lost his battle with stage 4 brain cancer today at the age of 57. Carter was diagnosed in May and had been making significant progress for a while, but it eventually went downhill.

Carter was a monster at the plate, having some fantastic seasons with the Expos and Mets during the 1970s and 1980s, earning a reputation as one of the game’s all-time greatest catchers.

Carter will forever be remembered by not only how he performed on the field, but also for his relationship with his teammates. Darryl Strawberry and Doc Gooden were on WFAN and 1050 ESPN tonight talking about how great of a teammate and a friend Carter really was.

Rest in peace Gary. You will be missed.

  1. I was never a big Gary Carter fan and am not sure that he really had HOF numbers BA .262 1200 RB! but I never doubted that he had HOF desire…he ALWAYS gave 100% on the field and for his determination and desire I truly respected him as a true professional…May he rest in peace….
