On Tuesday, the catcher was honored with a street renamed for him in Montreal — Gary Carter Street — close to where the Hall of Famer played from 1974-1984.
Carter, who died from brain cancer at age 57 in February 2012, is one of two Expos to be inducted into the Hall of Fame and had his No. 8 jersey retired by the team.
Carter's widow, Sandy, and daughter Kimmy, were unable to attend the event, only learning about it shortly beforehand, but the family will travel to Montreal on June 15 for the official opening of the Gary Carter baseball park.
Long live The Kid.
