Joe Carter's Winning Blast Off 'Wild Thing'
Rick Weinberg, ESPN
Just one time.
Only once had a World Series ended with a walk-off home run. That was in 1960, when Bill Mazeroski's leadoff homer in bottom of the ninth inning in Game 7 gave the Pittsburgh Pirates a 10-9 victory over the New York Yankees.
However, a player had never hit a come-from-behind, World Series-winning home run.
Until Joe Carter.
