October 23 - Joe Carter wins the World Series for the Blue Jays!

"Touch em all Joe, you'll never hit a bigger home run in your life". Doesn't that quote say it all?

On this day, 17 years ago, Joe Carter hit one of the most famous home runs in baseball history, as his three run shot gave the Toronto Blue Jays their 2nd world series in as many years. The home run made Carter an instant legend in Blue Jays baseball history. Carter is only one of two men to end a World Series with a home run.

Since then, the Blue Jays have yet to win a world series. To make matters even more trying, the Blue Jays World Series win was the last time any Canadian team in any of the 4 major sports leagues (NHL, NFL, NBA, MLB), has won a championship.

Carter would end his career as a 5 time all star and with 396 career home runs.
