Random cards. Gary Carter. Plays at the plate.

 Looks like these might be from the same game.

Something tells me that Gary might have decided that 1992 would be his last season right after this play. Anyone know who that Dodger was?

 Bonus card of Gary playing 1B.

Bonus card of Gary signing for the fans at spring training. Classy guy.


  1. But did Carter apply the tag on that one card? To me it just looks like he put a hit on the guy without ever touching him with the ball.

  2. Might have been a force play. If I could figure out which Dodger I could probably figure out what happened using the gamelogs on

  3. Ok, so seeing as Gary didn't play a ton of games that year, I've narrowed it down to one game.
    July 6 1992, game one of a doubleheader.

    Mike Scioscia (looks like him) was thrown out at home in the bottom of the 1st inning.
    The play log says he was out C-3B, but that makes no sense and was probably reversed in error.

    Dodgers won 8-3.
