GARY CARTER DIES AT 57

Hall-of-Fame catcher Gary Carter lost his battle with brain cancer today at the age of 57. Known as “Kid” for his enthusiasm and upbeat spirit, Carter played 19 major league seasons for four teams (Expos, Mets, Giants, Dodgers).

It was with the Mets in 1986 that Carter played for a World Series championship team, calling the signals for the excellent New York pitching staff while batting .255/.337/.439 and driving in 105 runs.

Carter was an 11-time All-Star, twice was named All-Star Game MVP and was selected to the Hall of Fame in 2003.
