Well Wishes for Gary Carter (And His First Mets Home Run)

With Gary Carter’s recent health issues (bronchitis, walking pneumonia in addition to brain cancer) I’ve been more nostalgic for the powerhouse Mets of the mid 1980s. The recent hiring of Davey Johnson as Washington Nationals manager accentuates this nostalgia.

I remember Carter’s Mets debut in 1985 like it was yesterday. This is the hit that made me forget they traded Hubie Brooks for him.

As Carter passes the halfway point of his radiation treatments we continue to wish him well and hope his health is headed in the right direction.
