Gary Carter passed away today. There aren’t enough words to post about the man known as “The Kid”. I may have never known him personally, but I rooted for him while he was a member of the Mets and I always loved him as a player. Of all the players on the 1986 team, I only have a t-shirt for him and Dykstra. See Ya Kid.
About The Author
I saw my first game back in 1987 against the Montreal Expos. I can recall walking up those concrete ramps to the "Uppers" with my family at Shea. The banter of New Yorkers talking about their lives. The smell of hot dogs as the vendors passed by. The darkness of a 7:10 game right before you enter the short tunnel welcoming one of the most magnificent sights you will ever see as a young boy - the green grass of a major league baseball field.
