The World Series is the largest stage for baseball players. While it takes the effort of an entire team to reach the championship series, it is often the case that one play can change the series outcome. World Series changing plays can come in many forms, whether it be a spectacular catch, pivotal hit or clutch pitching performance.

The Count was 2-2 when Carter smashed a pitch from Mitch Williams to clinch the game.
