METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 16, 1974 GAME:Ed K
May 10, 2013
This game served as the debut of a young Expo named Gary Carter and a former first-round draft choice pitching for the Mets named Randy Sterling. Sterling got the better of the game (his only MLB win) and got Carter out twice as Gary went 0 for 4, but their careers diverged after that. Carter grounded out to 3B (Garrett to Milner) in his first at-bat. He did throw out Mike Jorgensen trying to steal.

My bad on the last post. Mike Jorgensen was, of course, already an Expo by this game.

Making his major league debut for the Expos as a late season callup in front of 9000+ diehards at Parc Jarry? Gary Edmund Carter. He went 0 for 4, not a way to start a great HOF career but then again Willie Mays went 0 for 24 before getting his 1st hit. As they say "You Never Know". R.I.P. Kid 1954-2012

Ed K, Carter could not have thrown out Mike Jorgensen stealing in this game. Both of them were playing for the Expos. Jorgensen was thrown out by Mets catcher Ron Hodges in the first inning.
