As the Padres family has been delighted with the reassuring news that Tony Gwynn has had a succesful surgery on his cancerous tumors, the MLB family has been mourning the loss of another member. Hall of Famer Gary Carter lost his battle with cancer yesterday. “The Kid,” as he was known, suffered from multiple brain tumors that ultimately took his life at the young age of 57. It’s times like these when you realize how tight knit the baseball community is. The amount of posts and tweets from past and present players was astounding. Rest in peace Gary, and keep on smiling.

About the author: Matt Rennick

Born and raised in San Diego and a Padres fan since day one. On that fateful night of September 6, 1989 when I came into this world, the game was on in the delivery room and the Padres beat the Astros and I have been forever engrained with Padre blood. I have followed sports my whole life and have written the Daily Friar for over a year and enjoy bringing all of you the news each morning.
