Gary Carter only spent five seasons in New York, but the city loved him enough to light up the Empire State Building in the Mets’ orange and blue colors Friday in his honor. Carter died Thursday because of brain cancer. He was an 11-time All-Star and had four 100-RBI seasons, two with the Mets.
In a tweet announcing the move, the Empire State Building called Carter a “humanitarian and World Series Champion.”
The Hall of Fame catcher helped the Mets win the 1986 World Series, their second in franchise history.Google+
