Gary Carter is the coach of the Palm Beach Atlantic University baseball team. And even though his battle with brain cancer has caused him to be apart from his team, he managed to make opening night last night.
You can read the whole story — and see pictures — of Carter’s appearance at the game. It’s not an easy read/view. Carter is clearly not well, as we knew from recent reports of his cancer battle.
But it is nonetheless inspiring to see him fight what is no doubt tremendous pain and exhaustion to make to the game and to see the young men he no doubt wishes he was coaching right now as they begin the season.
