What a shame to hear of the death of Gary "The Kid" Carter. The greatest Montreal Expo ever who sadly died way II young at age LVII (57) in the great State of Florida this past week. Gary died of brain cancer & was always filled with such youthful vim & vigour when he played the game. This is why its so sad to here of him dying so young as he had a lust IV life & baseball. Students & fans of the game have II understand that Gary not just played baseball, he lived & breathed it, every fibre of his being. All I can suggest is that if today's fans want to honour him that they make donations in Gary's memory to The Gary Carter Foundation, his group that does good charitable works to help disadvantaged kids. Its what Gary would have wanted.
