So sad. Only 57 years old. **** cancer!
Plus the fact that it was only discovered a year ago.
I was lucky enough to see him play quite a few times. As an Expo and as a Met. I am so saddened. RIP Mr. Carter. You will be missed. AND NEVER FORGOTTEN!
Only a Giant for a single season, but by far my favorite catcher in the 1980s. Class player, class guy, gone way too soon.
Montreal Canadiens tribute to Gary Carter
I was a huge baseball fan when I was a kid. Played for years. LOVED the game. Actually had a gf break up with me b/c she said I talked about baseball too much lol
Carter was a class act, I always remembered him smiling. I remember watching the Dodgers - Expos in 81' (?) , sitting by myself, watching the game on an ol' black and white TV while all my friends were outside playing then crying when Rick Monday won the game
This video doesn't show it, but the Habs players all wore Canadiens jerseys with Carter's #8 on it then auctioned the jerseys off later for the Gary Carter Kids Foundation.
The first part is in French, but the English is after.
Though you folks would appreciate it:
btw, I forgot to mention that I'm more of a closet fan now. Ironicially, it was the big strike where the Expos were leading the season and it was cancelled, that turned me off. In my mind, that ruined a good part of baseball what with the big idiotic contracts and free agency. Better for players, but I feel the game is now more of who can spend more rather than a GM and its scouting team doing the right job enough. I know it doesn't always work out that way, but disappointing.
I do, however, have an annual fall tradition where we end up watching most of the world series while moose hunting in a remote hunting cabin with satellite.
