Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I was having a bad ( 1993 World ) Series at the plate. Just awful. All I was looking for was a pitch to put into to play. Get a good look at it and take an ugly swing. I never, ever thought that ball I hit would leave the park. It was a moment and a swing that will be with me forever." - Joe Carter

Joe Carter is probably most famous for his walk-off home run to win the 1993 World Series for the Toronto Blue Jays, but he was also a first round draft pick in 1981 (second overall), the first 30/30 Club member in Cleveland Indians franchise history (1987) and the first Blue Jays player to hit two home runs in the same inning ( October 3, 1993 ).

When Joe Carter hung up his playing cleats in 1998, he had ten seasons with 100-or-more RBIs, a feat matched - at that time - by exactly eight players, all of them hall of famers; Willie Mays (10x), Stan Musial (10x), Goose Goslin (11x), Hank Aaron (11x), Al Simmons (12x), Jimmie Foxx (13x), Lou Gehrig (13x), and Babe Ruth (13x).
