Today in Sports History: September 13

By Jonah Sharf

On September 13, 1991, Toronto Blue Jays legend Joe Carter became the first player in MLB history to record 100 RBI in three consecutive seasons for three different teams (the Indians, the Padres, and the Blue Jays). This was a part of a run of six consecutive seasons with 100 RBI, that would have been extended to nine if not for one season with 98 RBI. Carter was a two-time Silver Slugger and five-time All-Star. While Carter did spend time with several teams, he was best known for his time in Toronto, where he helped the Blue Jays win back-to-back World Series in 1992 and 1993, hitting a walk-off home run to win the ’93 series.
