There are a few players that love to play the game so much that you can virtually see it coming off of them. Gary Carter was one of those players. Always smiling, always showing how much he loved baseball and always displaying how skilled he was at it. A no-doubt Hall of Famer and certainly a name worth batting around in the discussion for greatest catcher of all time. Mr. Carter lost his battle with cancer today at the age of 57.  The entire baseball, FanSided and Southside Showdown will remember Gary Carter the player, and the man, fondly. Rest in Peace, Kid. Gone much too soon.
