Kid Keeps Battling
Mets Hall of Fame Catcher Gary Carter, who has been quite ill since it was discovered more tumors have emerged in his brain, showed the heart of a champion when he visited his team, the Palm Beach Atlantic College baseball team.
Carter made a rare appearance when he shook the hands of his teams' players, and offering a rallying cry, "Lets get a win tonight."
This appearance was rare for Carter since being diagnosed with brain cancer back in May 2011, but there is no place he would rather be than watching his team play.
In recent weeks, Carter has ceased taking radiation and chemotherapy which had made him feel ill.
As his daughter Kimmy said when she accepted the Ya Gotta Have Heart award for her father back on January 21st, 'just pray for dad.'
The Kid will always have a place in the hearts of Mets fans for his energetic play and for his key two out hit in game 6 of the 1986 World Series, but now it's time for him to be in our thoughts and prayers as he continues to fight the most important battle.
