The Kid played 19 seasons in the National League for the Montreal Expos (1974-1984, 1992), the New York Mets (1985-1989) and one-year stints with the Giants (1990) and Dodgers (1991).

Gary was a key component to the 1986 World Series champion New York Mets squad that won 108 during the regular season. Carter’s 10th -inning single began the rally against the Red Sox in Game 6.
