"Touch 'em all, Joe! You'll never hit a bigger home run in your life!"

Twenty years ago, Joe Carter's walk-off three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning gave the Toronto Blue Jays their second consecutive World Series victory.

This was just the second time a World Series ended with a home run and the first time it had happened for a team that was trailing headed into the bottom of the ninth (the previous walk-off World Series winner, by Bill Mazeroski in 1960, which happened when the teams were tied, according to Baseball Reference).
