gary carter returned to the expos after the 1991 season for a last hurrah in montreal. as a result, o-pee-chee gave us the fifth installment of their 'tribute' subset, showing carter in an expos uniform for the last time.
the kid played in 95 games in 1992, but hit a paltry .218 with 5 homers for the expos in his final season. his final big league home run, number 324 of his career, came off of mike morgan of the cubs which i find interesting because carter was morgan's catcher in la when morgan made his last start as a dodger in october of 1991. this is not to say that carter couldn't have homered off of morgan had he not been his catcher (obviously he hit a lot of long balls off of guys he never caught), but i have always wondered how much pitchers and catchers really share and i assume that catching a guy for even a short time gives one a pretty good sense of what he throws in certain situations. anyway, gary carter had a heckuva career and a pretty positive life. rest in peace kid.
voici à vous, 1992 gary carter tribute (expos 1992)!
