In his new book, Mookie Wilson says Gary Carter never wanted Keith Hernandez to be named team captain.
“Gary Carter let it be known he felt that Keith was unfit to play the role of captain,” Wilson writes (NY Post, Apr. 25). “Perhaps to appease Carter, the Mets made him co-captain of the team [in 1988].”
Carter died of brain cancer in February 2012.
Hernandez is scheduled to be a call-in guest to SNY’s Daily News Live at 5 pm ET to talk about Wilson’s book and comments.
