Former Major League catcher Gary Carter, a key member of the 1986 World Champion New York Mets and member of the Hall of Fame, issued a statement on the Mets web site saying that his doctors found several small tumors on his brain. It is not currently known if the tumors are benign or malignant.
News outlet CNN.com quotes the statement: "Earlier today, I learned that four very small tumors have been found on my brain, following an MRI on Friday at a West Palm Beach facility. I am scheduled to be examined further Thursday at Duke Medical Center, and we will learn more at that time about my diagnosis.
"My wife, Sandy, and our children and family thank you for your thoughts and prayers. We ask that you please respect our privacy as we learn more about my medical condition."
Carter, 57, won several Gold Gloves for his defense and Silver Slugger awards for his offense, and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2003.
