It's a sad day for Canadian baseball fans.
Gary Carter has passed away after a courageous fight against brain cancer.
There was a time when Carter was the most popular athlete in Canada; Gretzky-like popular. I was born midway through his career and never had a chance to watch him play. But from what I've read, he was a great person, on and off the field. He loved God, his family and baseball.
Gary Carter – All-Star, World Series champion, Hall-of-Famer and one of the greatest players to ever wear a Montreal Expos uniform.
Condolences to his family.
