In the wake of the reports about Gary Carter’s health, Mets fan Stephen Macomber has started a Facebook page to get his number retired.
From the Facebook page’s description:
An attempt to give a voice and force behind getting Gary Carter’s #8 retired by the NY Mets. In the History of the team there has been no greater force behind the plate. He was essential part of the 1986 WSC team. Lets get him this Honor.
