Gary 'The Kid' Carter, 1954-2012

"He was a human backstop back there. Early, before his knees went bad, you couldn't steal on him in Montreal. When he wasn't able to throw because of his knees, that never affected his performance. He was running on and off the field after three outs. This guy played in some pain and it was hustle, hustle, hustle."

-- Keith Hernandez on Gary Carter, Carter died of cancer today.
