1. Touch ‘Em All Joe in 1993
As if there was any doubt about who was No. 1.
Joe Carter’s iconic home run in 1993 is best described by legendary Blue Jays radio announcer Tom Cheek, who infamously said, “touch ’em all Joe, you’ll never hit a bigger home run in your life!”
Cheek’s words strike a chord with any baseball fan, as Carter’s two-out, two-strike home run off Phillies closer Mitch Williams is one of the most iconic moments in all of sports.
It was only the second time the World Series had ended on a home run, but for Jays’ fans, they will always remember where they were when Carter took Williams deep in the bottom of the ninth inning in Game 6 of the 1993 World Series.
