Memorial For Mets Great Gary Carter To Be Streamed Live Online

NEW YORK (WFAN) — Family, friends and former teammates will say goodbye to Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter at a memorial Friday night.

Fans of the Mets great will be able to watch the service online.

The Christ Fellowship Church will stream the memorial from Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., live on its website.

A key cog in the Mets’ 1986 championship team, Carter died last Thursday after a battle with brain cancer. He was 57.

The New York Daily News reported Tuesday that former teammates Keith Hernandez, Howard Johnson, Mookie Wilson and Darryl Strawberry are among those expected to attend.

Current Mets David Wright, Jon Niese, manager Terry Collins and general manager Sandy Alderson also plan to be at the service, according to the paper.

“The Kid,” a beloved 11-time All-Star, played most of his career with New York and Montreal.

He was inducted to Cooperstown in 2003 as an Expo.
