Side note:

That video has a now-deceased announcer, calling the last hit of a now-deceased player, for a now-deceased franchise.

Interesting trivia from a poster on Baseball Think Factory:

Gary Carter hit .400 in his 22 plate appearances against Jamie Moyer, who's signed to a deal with the Rockies for 2012. That's the same number of PA he had against Jim Kaat, who debuted in 1959.

He played on the same team as Matt Stairs, who retired last year. And he played on the same team as Ron Fairly, who began his career in 1958.

I was seven years old during the 86 World Series, and it stands out as one of my earliest sports memories. For Christmas that year, I got this poster, which hung in my bedroom for years.

RIP, Gary.

I got that poster from my uncle who was a huge Mets fan and turned me into one as well. I was nine years old during the 86' WS and still have that poster in my garage.

Jonah Keri, a Montreal native, penned a nice remembrance at Grantland.

The quote from Daryl Strawberry at the end is both a sad self-reflection by Strawberry of wasted opportunity and a fitting tribute to Carter:

"I wish I could have lived my life like Gary Carter."
