Hall of Famer Gary Carter will be honored tonight before the New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays play the first Major League Baseball game in Montreal since the Expos left after the 2004 season.
Carter’s widow Sandy and daughter Kimmy Bloemers will represent the late Expos and Mets star, who died of brain cancer in 2012.
“It is going to be hard. It hasn’t been two years yet, but I knew we had to be there,” Sandy Carter said. “I agreed when I heard there would be a game at the old park and then when I heard it was the Mets, I knew it was right.
“It’s like two pieces of our hearts joining together that night.”
