The end of the 1993 World Series is one of those iconic sports moments you’ve probably seen in passing, but might not understand in-depth. This episode of Rewinder digs into how much was at stake, who was involved, and what a topsy-turvy battle Game 6 between the Blue Jays and Phillies really was.
Obviously, this is a Joe Carter story, and we’ll get to know Carter a bit.
