Jose Reyes cheered by Mets Fans at Baseball Writer's dinner


He is no longer a Met, but Jose Reyes was still a Mets fan favorite at the Baseball Writers of America New York chapter awards dinner Saturday night.

Making his first public appearance since he bolted for the Marlins as a free agent, Reyes was cheered by fans in the audience when he was introduced.

Reyes was honored with the Good Guy Award and lived up to the honor by making it a point to thank Mets fans.
“I know I am not going to be here no more, but I appreciate all the support you gave me all these years,” Reyes said.

Gary Carter sends message to Mets Fans


Gary Carter is too ill to travel, but the former Mets catcher received a standing ovation when his name was mentioned last night.

Carter, who is fighting an uphill battle against brain cancer, sent a message via his children at an awards dinner.

“I’ll always have a special place in my heart for the city and people of New York,” said Carter, in a message read by his son, D.J. “I’ll never forget my first game in a Mets uniform on Opening Day in 1985 when I had the fortune of leading the team to victory with a walkoff home run.

“The fans were always supportive of me on the baseball field and continue to support me and my family since I was diagnosed with brain cancer in May.”

Carter was honored with the Arthur and Milton Richman “You Gotta Have Heart” Award at the Baseball Writers Association New York chapter’s annual dinner at the Hilton in Midtown.
