Happy Opening Day, Hall of Famer Gary Carter.

The Long Island Ducks open their season today.

And when they take the field, there might be some names and faces that look familiar to you.
Joining Gary Carter on the Ducks are former major leaguers the likes of pitchers Brad Halsey and Dan Miceli (not pictured), and outfielders Raul Gonzalez (Mets, 2002-2003) and Preston Wilson (I couldn't believe it either).

He's also got some former Mets on his coaching staff - Bud Harrelson and Kevin Baez.

The season starts at 7:05pm on the road against the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs. They come home Friday, May 1st, on Gary Carter bobblehead night. (I can't attend, but a free blog post to anyone who gets me one of those bobbleheads.)

We'll keep you posted on the Ducks' season.
