Remembering Joe Carter's World Series winning home run (video)

There have been a lot of great memories when it comes to post-season baseball.

Walk off hits, defensive plays, even some brawls between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees.

But one that stands out has to be Joe Carter’s home run on October 23rd, 1993 that gave the Toronto Blue Jays their second World Series title in back to back seasons.

The home run came at the bottom of the ninth and the Blue Jays were down 5-6 against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Announcer Tom Cheek who was calling the game, specifically said “Touch ‘em all Joe,  you’ll never hit a bigger home run in your life.” And he was right. That home run that Carter launched to win the series against the Phillies has been the biggest home run of his career.

Possibly one of the biggest home runs in World Series history. It’s hard to narrow it down, but I’m sure there’s a list out there.

I wonder what Joe Carter’s doing right now.
