The untimely death of Gary Carter and what we can learn from what happened to the “kid”

FAR TOO MANY YOUNG, STRONG, FIT, HEALTHY ATHLETIC MEN AND WOMEN ARE DYING AN EARLY DEATH FROM BRAIN CANCER. THERE IS SOMETHING GOING ON. IT IS EXPLAINED IN DETAIL HERE.

DARREN DAULTON DIED JUST YESTERDAY

 

Gary-Legend

His death was a  tragic, untimely loss, seemingly without reason. The hope of many is that this field of dreams in our home town will offer the next generation what may seem impossible: a chance at the big league and the big time. My sincere hope in this article is, maybe in his memory, I can expose what I believe has stolen the best years of Gary’s and many other ballplayers’ lives. That is what I will attempt to explore and assert. The cruel twists and turns of this arduous life don’t make sense at times, especially when it seems the good die young and the impetuous inherit the earth. I never had the pleasure of personally meeting Mr. Gary Carter,  but his reputation preceded him. His career in the major leagues spanned decades and his philanthropy will span even more. He was known as “Kid” for his ebullient demeanor. He was known to all as number 8 on the field, to some as dad, to some as one of a kind to many more, he will be forever remembered as Gary Carter, one of baseball’s great players.

On Saturday, Febuary 21st, field two at the Fullerton Sports complex will be dedicated and officially named Gary Carter field.
