Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter, whose single for the New York Mets in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series led to perhaps the most famous comeback in baseball history, died Thursday. He was 57. Carter was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor in May.

Carter spent 11 seasons with the Montreal Expos but reached his greatest fame during his five-season tenure for the Mets. He was an 11-time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove winner and was the first player to go into the Hall of Fame with an Expos cap on his plaque.

Big part of my 1985-1986 gone this week between Whitney and now The Kid. Ive read a few books on the 86 Mets and he was like the only guy not drugging and womanizing.

In 1982, he started 151 games at catcher and hit .293/.381/.510. I can't even begin to imagine that.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.
