1993 Thanks to Joe Carter's dramatic ninth inning three-run homer, the Blue Jays beat the Phillies 8-6 to win their second consecutive World Championship. The Toronto outfielder becomes just the second player to end the World Series with a home run, joining Bill Mazeroski, whose Forbes Field's round tripper beat the Yankees in 1960.

1995 Former Astros GM Bob Watson is named as the Yankees' new general manager, replacing Gene Michael. Watson, upset with the chain of command within the organization, will stay in the position for just two seasons, but under his watch the team will win its first World Series since 1978, establishing the groundwork for the very successful Bronx Bomber clubs of the late 1990's.
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. It will be first of 14 consecutive World Series victories as the Bronx Bombers start their run of four titles in five years.
