The 1993 Season Set.  Touch 'em all, Joe! You'll never hit a bigger home run in your life! As Joe Carter's Game 6 game winning home run flew over the left field fence, long time Blue Jay's announcer Tom Cheek delivered the perfect call.  Carter would never hit a bigger home run.  It was an amazing end to another amazing Major League Baseball season.  1993 saw expansion in Major League Baseball for the first time since 1977 and it was fitting that the Blue Jays, a 1977 expansion team, would win their second World Series Championship in a row.  The regular season is best know for the NL West pennant race between the Atlanta Braves and the San Francisco Giants.  Both teams won over 100 games as the Braves notched 104 wins and the Giants 103.  The Giants held a 10 game lead in the West on July 22, but eventually gave way to the Braves.  The Giants signed Barry Bonds in the off-season and he nearly carried the Giants to the playoffs, winning the 1993 NL MVP award, belting 46 home runs.  The Braves were led by the strong pitching of NL Cy Young Award winner Greg Maddux who was in the rotation with John Smoltz and Tom Glavine.  The grimy, dirty and gutty Philadelphia Phillies won the NL East by 3 games over the young, up and coming Montreal Expos.  The Blue Jays, of course, won the AL East with a powerful team while the Chicago White Sox won the AL West as MVP Frank Thomas teamed up with Cy Young winner Jack McDowell to lead the White Sox.  Mike Piazza of the Dodgers won the NL Rookie of the Year and Tim Salmon of the Angels won the AL Rookie of the Year award.  The young superstars were alive and well with impressive performances from Ken Griffey Jr., Juan Gonzalez, David Justice and many others.  Relive it all with Dugout Steps Baseball and the 1993 Season Set.
