Gary Carter’s Brain Cancer Determined to Be Inoperable

Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter received news Tuesday that the cancer in his brain is inoperable, according to a report in the New York Post.

The report says that Carter has glioblastoma, for which surgery would be too dangerous, but doctors are planning an "aggressive treatment plan" that includes chemotherapy and radiation.

Over the weekend, it was announced that Carter, 57, had been diagnosed with brain cancer. Carter played 19 seasons in the majors, including 12 with the Montreal Expos and five with the New York Mets. An 11-time All-Star, three-time Gold Glove winner and Wold Series winner in 1986, Carter was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2003.
