It was just made public that Gary Carter has passed away, after a terrible fight with brain cancer. I'm sitting here at work completely beside myself. It's very tragic when a hero passes on, especially one the baseball world was so close to. To all his family, friends, former teammates, and fans... you're in my prayers. The legacy of this hero won't ever fade.
In his rememberance I'd like to share the MasterCard commercial that shows his former pitcher, Ron Darling standing up to cancer on his behalf.
I’m Stephanie, 25 years old and the owner and writer of this site. I work throughout many areas of Major League Baseball and its broadcasts. Being a passionate, die-hard fan and having behind the scenes access, I try to provide a unique perspective on all 30 MLB organizations by focusing on the human element and soul of the game of baseball. My experience includes working with MLB Network, FOX Sports Chicago/Indiana (MLB and NFL), and Comcast SportsNet on the morning sports show "Monsters in the Morning." When I was 16 I started studying the game of baseball from a saber metrics standpoint. When I was 18 I began to focus on the history of the game, and when I was 21 I went in depth to embody the early 20's style of ball. Throughout my life I have expanded my views and beliefs within the game of baseball to create an unbiased, rounded view of the game. I'm an active host for mlb players charity outings and a contributing writer at Seamheads.com. I’m available for freelance writing/work and also speaking about careers in the sports field - just email me at email@example.com. I hope you enjoy the site and keep living The Baseball Life!
