R.I.P. Gary Carter

  1. Baseball suffered a great loss today. Gary Carter was an incredible human being. I would take my sons to Shea Stadium all the time and he always stopped his car to sign autographs. My son Joseph was one of the lucky kids and I will never forget that. His smile was contagious. I was so sad to hear this. He is now in God's Embrace.

  2. "And the Red Sox are two strikes away..."

    And Gary made sure they never got there.

    Rest in peace, Kid. Because of you, we'll always have Game 6.

  3. I was born In 1985. I watched my fathers' home recording of The Wild boys, 1986 mets season summarization. But today, is the first day I ever cried for a man who showed me how awesome baseball could be and cement me as a lifelong mets fan.

    I'll mIss you, Gary.

  6. As always Joe, you summed up in pictures what we all feel in our hears. Was fortunate to have been at Opening Day 1985 and witness his first game as a Met - beanballs, HR, and all. There should be a class for all pro athletes on how to conduct yourself, and Gary Carter is that patron saint of professionalism.
