PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) -- More than 1,000 people have turned out for a memorial in Florida to honor Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter.
Another Hall of Fame catcher, Johnny Bench, eulogized Carter, saying "no words are adequate" to describe his greatness.
Carter's three children described him as a devoted father who was as impressive off the field as on it.
Dozens of current and former players showed up for the service in Palm Beach Gardens.
Carter died Feb. 16 of brain cancer at the age of 57.
He was an 11-time All-Star, playing most of his career with the Montreal Expos and New York Mets. He's best known for a single for the Mets in the '86 World Series, which touched off one of the most improbable rallies in baseball history.
