Saying goodbye to The Kid (1954-2012)

Baseball mourns the loss of Gary Carter, who helped the Mets to the 1986 title and was inducted in the Hall of Fame after a 19-year career with the Expos, Mets, Giants and Dodgers. “The Kid” passed away peacefully on Feb. 16, 2012, at the age of 57 in his home state of Florida after a courageous battle with brain cancer.

“Driven by a remarkable enthusiasm for the game, Gary Carter became one of the elite catchers of all-time,” Commissioner Bud Selig said. “‘The Kid’ was an 11-time All-Star and a durable, consistent slugger for the Montreal Expos and the New York Mets, and he ranks among the most beloved players in the history of both of those franchises. . . . I extend my deepest condolences to Gary’s wife Sandy, their daughters Christy and Kimmy, their son D.J., their grandchildren, his friends and his many fans.”

Major League Baseball invites fans to please leave any condolences and memories of Gary in this guestbook blog’s comments.

    My husband, Vaughan, was a great fan of Gary Carter. He had a Carter Mets t-shirt. He died, age 53, on Halloween 2013. Maybe they are both up there playing catch! If you build it, he will come. RIP both of you.

    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues? A couple of my blog audience have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?

    This status also served to make the tests too expensive
    at $3,500 plus for many patients. Clients mostly persuade their patent attorney to sign a non disclosure agreement.
    This would also give a way for certain modifications that you would want to


    Definitely consider that that you said. Your favourite justification appeared to be
    at the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you,
    I definitely get annoyed while people consider issues that they plainly don’t understand about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as neatly as outlined out the entire thing without having side effect , other people could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter
    updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in
    Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to
    give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!
