Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter dies at 57 | MLB.com: News

NEW YORK — Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter died Thursday following a lengthy battle with brain cancer. He was 57.

Best known for his role on the 1986 World Series champion Mets and for his 10-year run with the Expos that preceded it, Carter had been battling cancer since doctors discovered inoperable tumors on his brain in May 2011, diagnosing him with grade 4 glioblastoma. His condition took a turn for the worse when an MRI exam revealed new tumors in January.

Carter passed at 4:10 p.m. ET, according to an entry on his family’s online journal.
