It's time to update you on Hall of Famer Gary Carter, as he celebrates his 55th birthday.

This year, Carter brings his act to New York, where he will manage the Long Island Ducks.

He's already started to make noise...apparently he was on WFAN in New York about a week ago and said he was upset that the Mets didn't ask him to catch the last pitch at Shea Stadium. Don't think there won't be plenty of noise coming out of Citibank Park (not to be confused with Citi Field) with Carter this close to the New York media.

Still, though, I love the man, and wish him a very happy birthday. And I also want to take this opportunity to remind you that he has had nothing but success as a minor league manager.

The Ducks season starts on April 23rd. We'll definitely be keeping you updated - and there will be a trip this summer as well.

(Also on this April 8, birthday wishes go out to Dave in Brighton.)
