Joseph Christopher Carter was born on March 7, 1960.

Although he hit 396 home runs in his 16-year career, Carter will always be connected to one of the most notable blasts in MLB history.

With the Blue Jays trailing the Phillies 6-5 in the ninth inning of Game 6 of the World Series, Carter sent a 2-2 pitch into the stands at Toronto’s SkyDome to seal the 1993 World Series. The home run sent the stadium into a frenzy and created one of the best moments in franchise history.

Carter ended his career in 1993 and only got 19 votes for the Hall of Fame in 2003.

However, he’ll always have the 1993 World Series.
