Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter underwent his first radiation treatment on Tuesday.

“I am happy to report that it went very well!” Carter’s daughter, Kimmy Bloemers, wrote in a journal entry on a private family website. “He is ready and determined to take on these six weeks [of radiation] like GAME SIX (maybe there is a small coincidence there all you Met fans!!) ...

Bloemers wrote that while radiation is the most “exhausting” of the three treatments Carter is undergoing, he was “pretty alert” and “feeling good with no pain."
