[1]MONTREAL (AP) — Montreal will name a street and a park after Gary Carter, the Hall of Fame catcher who defined the golden era of a once-beloved franchise.

Carter died in February of cancer at age 57.

On Wednesday, the city announced the details of its tribute to the player who starred with the now-defunct Expos for more than half of his career.

The street borders Jarry Park, where the Expos played for most of their first decade and where Carter made his big-league debut.

There will also be a park in the north-end Ahuntsic district named after him.

The changes will be enacted by the city council in February, a year after Carter’s death.
