Oct. 23, 1993 – Joe Carter’s homerun wins the World Series for the Blue Jays

Joe Carter of the Blue Jays hit a game-winning, three-run homer off Mitch Williams of the Philadelphia Phillies, giving Toronto an 8-6 victory in Game 6 of the World Series and a second straight world championship.

Carter became only the second player to end the World Series with a homerun. The first was in 1960, when Bill Mazeroski’s leadoff homer in bottom of the ninth inning in Game 7 gave the Pittsburgh Pirates a 10-9 victory over the New York Yankees.

“I actually dreamed of that moment many times,” Carter says today. “I dreamed of that moment when I was a little kid. I’d be sitting at my father’s garage and daydreaming about that moment. I even wrote it down a few times: ‘My dream is to hit a home run to win the World Series.’”
