1993 Mike Piazza, the sixty-second round pick of the 1988 draft, is the BBWAA's unanimous choice for the Rookie of the Year award in the National League. The Dodger catcher is the first player to hit over .300 (.318), connect for more than 30 homers (35), and drive in at least 100 runs (112) in the Senior Circuit as a freshman since Wally Berger accomplished the feat in his initial major league season with the Braves in 1930.
1996 After losing the first two games of the Fall Classic at the Stadium, David Cone limits the Braves to four hits and one run in six innings en route to a Yankee 5-2 win. The contest will be the first of 14 consecutive World Series victories as the Bronx Bombers start their run of four titles in five years.
