Jays win the se­ries

NOW Magazine - Anniversary special - - Toronto Symphony Orchestra -

When the Blue Jays play their in­au­gu­ral game in the snow in 1976, no one ex­pects it to take the team only 17 sea­sons to win the World Se­ries. Joe Carter fig­ures promi­nently in the last play. He takes the throw from re­liever Mike Tim­lin on Otis Nixon’s ground­out to seal the deal, though it’s not nearly as spec­tac­u­lar a mo­ment as his walk-off homer that will win the se­ries again the next year. Peren­ni­ally un­der­ap­pre­ci­ated Cito Gas­ton – the first black manager to win a se­ries – leads both win­ning teams.
