The Top Ten

1 Joe Carter - 93 Blue Jays

He is the face every time I here Blue Jays.

Blue jays are epic

2 Cole Hamels - 08 Phillies
3 David Freese - 11 Cardinals

Twice in Game 6! - 5ToolPlayers

4 Bill Mazeroski - 60 Pirates
5 Don Larson - 56 Yankees
6 Joe Crede - 05 White Sox

Joe Joe the late inning hero! - crazyeyes56

7 Kirby Puckett - 91 Twins

Took over in Game 6

8 Kirk Gibson - 88 Dodgers
9 Sandy Koufax - 65 Dodgers

In an era when a good fastball was reaching the plate at around 92mph, Koufax was routinely breaking 100.
Fastest I remember was 104.

10 Reggie Jackson - 77 Yankees Reggie Jackson - 77 Yankees

Saw it when it happened. Watch it every time it's replayed.
The odds against anything like that happening again are astronomical.

The Contenders

11 Derek Jeter - Yankees 90's Dynasty Derek Jeter - Yankees 90's Dynasty Derek Sanderson Jeter is an American former professional baseball shortstop, current businessman and baseball executive who is the chief executive officer and part owner of the Miami Marlins of Major League Baseball.

Probably start an argument, here, but this kid is the best all-around player of all time.
A menace at the plate, and a combination of ballet dancer, roadrunner, kangaroo, hummingbird and sniper at short.
Ran full-out, every play, even when there was barely a prayer of making it.
And through it all, humble, almost to a fault.
Chances are, you'll never see another Derek Jeter.

12 Edgar Renteria - 97 Marlins
13 Curt Schilling - 04 Red Sox, 01 Diamondbacks

Don't forget about his Game 6 for the Phillies in 93

14 Randy Johnson - 01 Diamondbacks
15 Josh Beckett - 03 Marlins, 07 Red Sox
16 Mariano Rivera - Yankees Dynasty
17 Livan Hernandez - 97 Marlins
18 Willie Mays - 54 Giants Willie Mays - 54 Giants
19 Carlton Fisk - 75 Red Sox
20 Babe Ruth - 32 Yankees Babe Ruth - 32 Yankees George Herman Ruth Jr., better known as Babe Ruth, was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935.

That hit changed the world series
