He was only 57 years old.
He did not win his war against brain CANCER.
Breaks my heart that he is gone, so sad.
He was a baseball LEGEND.
As you know I am from Quebec, Canada. Baseball was never the number 1 sport there, nothing can take the place of Hockey, but we did have a team called The Montreal Expos until 2004.
From 1974 to 1984 Gary Carter WAS The Expos.
|With Andre Dawson and Tim Raines|
He played 19 years in the MLB, 10 of them were in Montreal and 5 great ones were with the METS...with them, he won the World Series in 1986.
I was not a huge baseball fan..not like I am a fan a Duke basketball or a hockey fan but...I was a huge fan of Gary Carter. He had this bigger than life personality and he was fun to watch. You could tell he LOVED to play..not just for the $$. I remember when I was a kid, he made me want to go see games at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal and made me want to watch baseball on TV.
Goodbye THE KID
