VIDEO: Relive Joe Carter’s World Series-winning homer which was, unbelievably, 20 years ago this week
This has not been a good year for Toronto baseball. Not only did all the offseason hope and optimism fade almost immediately, but now the Boston Red Sox—the Blue Jays’ bearded, manager-poaching nemeses—are one game up in the 2013 World Series. But 20 years ago was a happier time. That’s when the Blue Jays and the Philadelphia Phillies squared off in that immortal Game Six, when Henderson walked and Molitor singled and Joe Carter hit that Dome-shaking walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth. Watch the video above to relive that moment—complete with sportscaster Tom Cheek’s epic call. Because sometimes it just feels nice to remember the good times. We can worry about next year another day.
