1993, Game 6
Toronto outfielder Joe Carter was the highest-paid player in baseball in 1993 ($5.5 million), and despite hitting just .254 for the season and .250 in the 1993 World Series before his final at-bat, he proved to be worth every penny when he tagged what remains only the second walk-off homer in a Series-clinching game. Carter’s three-run blast victimized Phillies reliever Mitch Williams, who was protecting a one-run lead that would have extended the Series to a deciding Game 7. Instead, the Blue Jays became the first repeat champs in 15 years and Williams [EM] who finished the Series with a 20.25 ERA [EM] would add just six more saves to his then-career-total of 186.
