Our '93 Foe Returns to the Dance

baseballIn 1993, fourteen years ago, Joe Carter touched 'em all. It was our second World Series championship in a row and the Philadelphia Phillies were our victims.

For fourteen years neither the Phillies or Blue Jays could get back to the post season. Today, the Philadelphia Phillies completed an historic comeback by beating the Washington Nationals, 6-1. Seven games out with 17 to play, the Phillies went 13-4 down the stretch to clinch the National League East title. They beat us to the punch, and I'm not happy about it.

Adding insult to injury, guess who's the Phillies GM? Pat Gillick, architect of our World Series teams and resident of the T.Dot. At least we'll always have this...

That was probably the last time there were more than 50,000 people in the SkyDome too.

I'll have to check out what the home opener was like in '94... but you might be right.

I was at the home opener in 94 and it was a capacity crowd. My friends and I actually had to rent a room at the hotel to see that game. And that was cool. 17 of us all squashed up at the window. I went to the last game before the strike too... I think I recall there being a lot at that time too. I think this years home opener was 50,000.
