R.I.P. Gary Carter
Sad news from MLB....
Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter passed away Thursday after a lengthy battle with brain cancer. He was 57.
Best known for his role on the 1986 World Series champion Mets and for his 10-year run with the Expos that preceded it, Carter had been battling cancer since doctors discovered inoperable tumors on his brain in May 2011. His condition took a turn for the worse when an MRI revealed new tumors in January 2012.
