RIP Gary Carter

Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter, who was diagnosed with inoperable glioblastoma this past June, has passed away at the age of 57. His daughter released the following statement:

“I am deeply saddened to tell you all that my precious dad went to be with Jesus today at 4:10 pm. This is the most difficult thing I have ever had to write in my entire life but I wanted you all to know. He is in heaven and has reunited with his mom and dad. I believe with all my heart that dad had a STANDING OVATION as he walked through the gates of heaven to be with Jesus.”

Terribly sad news. “The Kid” was an unforgettable player who will always have a special place in the hearts of Mets fans. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Carter family.
