Kudos to the New York Mets for this classy gesture.

Prior to their Opening Day contest Thursday afternoon against the Atlanta Braves, the Mets players and coaches were warming up in special batting practices uniforms.

Every single Mets player and coach wore a blue Gary Carter #8 jersey, paying tribute to their fallen friend.

Thanks to the Mets' official Twitter account for the above photo.

You can see a few more photos of the Mets wearing their Carter jerseys on MetsBlog.

It's really a great move by the Mets to do something like this.

We'll miss you, forever Kid.
