People in the baseball world heard the unfortunate news today that Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter passed away at the age of 57 of a malignant brain tumor. He had been diagnosed with the tumor since last May.
In a 19 year career mostly with the Montreal Expos and the New York Mets, "The Kid" as he was famously nicknamed played a huge role in helping the Expos make their only playoff appearence in 1981 and helping the Mets win the World Series in 1986. In all, Carter had 3 Gold Glove Awards, 2 MLB All Star MVP's with 11 All-Star Appearences, 324 Homers with 1225 RBI's. However he will also be remebered for being the first person to be inducted in Cooperstown as an Expo.
All in all, Gary Carter will his curly blond locks that were flaring out from beneath his along with a rigid upright batting stance, was always forever young and he will be truly missed from everybody who followed him closely during his playing career.
