Twenty-five years ago today the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Atlanta Braves 4-3 in 11 innings in Game 6 to clinch the first World Series title in franchise history.
Game 6 was not only the clinching game of the series, it was also the best — and arguably most dramatic — game of what was a hard-fought, close series that very easily could have gone either way.
On Oct. 24, 1992, I was a high school student aspiring to one day cover the World Series. I watched Game 6 with my family, recording the game on video to be sure I had a copy if the Blue Jays won that night. That VHS tape is probably collecting dust in a box in my basement.
To commemorate the occasion — and to see what tricks my memory might be playing on me — I re-watched the game in its entirety here below beginning at 10 a.m. ET and shared my observations via Twitter (@shidavidi).
