Biography:

The 1993 World Series was decided with one swing of the bat when Sports Speaker Joe Carter hit a memorable walk off home run to win it all against for the Toronto Blue Jays. This game winner and the timeless video of Joe bounding his way around the bases added the ultimate highlight to what was a great major league career that amounted to 5 All-Star Game appearances, 2 Silver Slugger Awards and 2 World Series titles. Joe is one of the only two players ever to hit a walk off home run to win the World Series the other being Bill Mazeroski for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1960.

Sports Speaker Joe attended Wichita State University and was named the College Player of the Year by Sporting News in his junior season in 1981. That same year he was drafted in the first round with the second overall pick by the Chicago Cubs. The heralded outfielder played for six different MLB teams during his tenure in the league most notably for the Blue Jays. He was a major force behind the team’s back to back World Series titles in 1992 and 1993. In 1998, Joe hung up the cleats in favor of the broadcast booth, first as a color commentator for the Blue Jays and eventually the Chicago Cubs. His good-natured personality has made him a natural in front of the camera and Joe was a featured pro in the Spike TV sports competition series Pros vs. Joes.

In 2006, Joe was awarded the Major League Baseball Hometown Heroes Award, given to the player that best represents the legacy of a franchise and their history. One of his major accomplishments off the field has been his annual celebrity golf tournament, the Joe Carter Classic, held in the Toronto to benefit the Children’s Aid Foundation.
