Mets to wear patch honoring Gary Carter
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- The Mets will wear a uniform patch this season to honor late Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter, featuring Carter's No. 8 emblazoned upon a white home plate.
Carter, who spent five of his 19 big league seasons in New York and is a member of the Mets Hall of Fame, died last week following a nine-month battle with brain cancer.
The Mets will also wear a 50th-anniversary patch throughout the season.
