Hall Of Famer Gary Carter Passes Away at 57
Hall Of Fame Catcher and member of the 1986 World Champion New York Mets Gary Carter has passed away at the age of 57.
Nicknamed “Kid”, Carter was an 11 time All-Star and a 3 time Golden Glove winner. Carter spent 19 years in the Major Leagues playing most of his years with the Montreal Expos. However he won his only World Series Championship with the New York Mets. Carter will be forever remembered by Mets fans and anti Red Sox fans like myself as the man who started the now legendary two out rally in the tenth inning of game six against the Boston Red Sox, this was of course the legendary “Bill Buckner” game that Sox fans would love to forget.
Carter was diagnosed with a brain tumor last May. It looked like he would fight the disease, but more tumors were found in January. One of the greatest Catchers of all time, May he Rest In Peace.
