Gary Carter

S.F. Giants, San Francisco Giants

Gary Carter shortly after he signed with us in 1990

This is a blog we didn’t want to do.  Although he is better known as a player with the Exops and Mets, Gary Carter, and his smile, were with the Giants in 1990 when he became the All-Time National League leader in games caught.  We think the first line of his Hall of Fame plaque sums him up perfectly:  “An exuberant on-field general with a signature smile who was known for clutch hitting and rock-solid defense over 19 seasons.”  Once a Giant, Always a Giant – Gary we will miss you.

* MLB has set up a guestbook if you would like to leave your condolences and memories.
