On Saturday, October 23rd, 1993, the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Philadelphia Phillies at the SkyDome (now Rogers Centre) in Toronto to win the 90th World Series four games to two. It was the second (and as of this writing, most recent) World Series championship for the Blue Jays franchise and the first that was won in Ontario. These are the top five players that I felt most stood out during the series.
This was also the second of only two series to end on a walk-off home run, as Blue Jays right fielder Joe Carter ended it in game six.
5. #38 Curt Schilling (Phillies)- P
Schilling got player of the game in game five, going all nine innings while allowing no earned runs on five hits and three walks as the Phillies went on to win 2-0.
4. #25 Devon White (Blue Jays)- CF
White claimed player of the game honors in game one, knocking in a pair of RBIs on three runs and two hits in the Blue Jays’ 8-5 win.
3. #19 Paul Molitor (Blue Jays)- DH
The former Minnesota Twins manager, Molitor scored player of the game honors in game three, as he got three RBIs on three runs, three hits, and a walk, as the Blue Jays took a 10-3 win.
2. #29 Joe Carter (Blue Jays)- RF
Carter earned player of the game in game six, hitting the game-winning home run for a total of four RBIs on one run and one hit as the Blue Jays won it 8-6 to claim the series victory.
1. #1 Tony Fernandez (Blue Jays)- SS
Fernandez took player of the game in game four, as he hit five RBIs along with two runs and three hits in the Blue Jays' 15-14 win, the highest-scoring game in World Series history.
