Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter died Thursday after a long battle with a brain tumor. He was 57.
Carter passed away at a Hospice near West Palm Beach, Fla., according to New York Mets team spokesman Jay Horwitz.
One of Carter's biggest moments was a two-out, two-strike single that trigged an improbable three-run rally in the bottom of the 10th inning in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series against the Boston Red Sox. New York went on to win the Series in seven games.
An 11-time All-Star, Carter was diagnosed in May 2011 with a malignant brain tumor.
He swatted 324 career home runs, 1,225 RBIs and had a .262 batting average with the Montreal Expos, New York Mets, Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants.
Nicknamed "Kid," Carter was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2003.
