The 2018 Major League Baseball World Series begins tonight between the Boston Red Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
In the spirit of the game, we look back to an event which happened 25 years ago today on October 23rd, 1993. The Toronto Blue Jays Joe Carter hit a 3 run home run in Game 6 of the World Series to defeat the Philadelphia Phillies 8-6 off of the Phils reliever Mitch “Wild Thing” Williams. At the time, it was only the second home run that ended a World Series and it was the first time that the concluding home run was hit when the team was behind in the score. Carter launched the home run into the left field corner with his team down 6-5 and two men on base.
Hopefully we’ll get similar magic in this upcoming World Series. You can watch the Joe Carter home run below as called by legendary broadcaster Vin Scully:
