Just another day at Hi-Topper HQ doing what we do best – totally definitive arbitrary lists. In honor of World Series Game 2’s bananas amount of home runs, we’re taking a look at the Top 5 Most Hi-Topper Approved World Series Home Runs.
Ding Dong City here we come.
5. Kirk Gibson Dodgers – 1988
Lots of talk that this should be higher up the list but people forget it was just Game 1.
4. Ricky Henderson -1989
The only thing cooler than ending a game with a home run is opening a game with a home run. Okay maybe not quite, but Ricky just makes it look so damn good.
3. Darryl Strawberry – 1986
Trigger Warning to the Red Sox Faithful here but I think 30 years and 3 titles is enough to be able to appreciate the beauty of a long and lanky “Darryl Darryl” moonshot. My eight year old self lived and died with Rich Gedman and Co. but even then I secretly loved Strawberry and his sweet sweet swing.
2. Kirby Puckett Twins – 1991
I prefer to pretend that Kirby Puckett exists forever in this one and only moment.
1. Joe Carter Blue Jays – 1993
World Series Walk-Off Homerun. Nuff said.
