    A “cause”?
    For what? To remind his family that he’s gone?
    Won’t sway MLB and it should have been done while he was still with us.

      What should them honoring a man like carter have anything to do with swaying MLB to relocate a team back to Montreal? Why can’t they just do it for the sake of doing it. Yes it should have been done when he was still alive but who knew he would be taken so young…you can’t predict those things and you can’t fault the city for acknowledging him even now.

    Still a great cause for a great man!

    Too little too late, he’s already gone.
