    Thank you CBS for streaming the memorial service. Gary Carter is now home with the Lord he loved. I pray for his family and friends that they will be comforted.

    • Bill

      CBS didn’t actually stream it, the church did. But it was nice of them to publicize it like they did.

  • Mr. Met13

    RIP will be greatly missed!! The service was very moving. I thought some former teammates like Mex, Wally, Darlin etc would speak. Hopefully, the Mets & the LI Ducks will retire #8

  • Sharon

    I watched. Touching and moving ceremony.

  • Jen

    As Mets fans, Gary Carter is forever part of our collective memory and celebration of the game! Gary was so much more than a phenomenal baseball player to us. He was the heart of the team! Without him, there would have been no Amazin’ Mets in ’86, nor would one witness the devotion, dedication, and craziness of the fans. He is a true Hero-love of not just the game, but family, friends, and fans! All we can say is THANK YOU for the tremendous gift!

  • Ben Banachowski

    From Province of Quebec, we salute you and thanks for those many years you spent with us … R.I.P. Gary !!!

  • Emerald

    Definitely watching! The ’86 World Champs should have been a dynasty – appreciating you more than I ever knew now. So sad to hear…

  • Yves Bell

    Vous étiez un grand homme M. Carter.

    Merci “Le Kid”

    RIP Gary

  • Sherry

    Yes, I will definitely be watching. I’m sad it’s not being televised by Fox Sports or ESPN. Thank you for streaming online for those who do not live in New York. Blessings to you. I was a sold-out Mets fan of the 80’s and really enjoyed the entire team and especially Gary. So sad that he is no longer with us, I do know he is in a better place now. Praying for his loved ones.

  • Bobby

    Wow, thank God the Memorial doesn’t conflict with Craig Carton’s Spike TV show, which I slept through last night.

    • flea

      Craig Carton is the worst thing to happen at The Fan since Scott Ferrall. Equally annoying.

  • NotAMetFan

    The Mets should have retired #8 while he was alive. Do the right thing.

    • Big L

      Absolutely! They should have retired it long ago. Classless,

  • Michael Terranova


  • Pete

    Ken it says 7 pm right in the top paragraph.
