Kirby Puckett - Twins. Note: I have great memories of his performance in the 1991 World Series against the Braves, but the peak was game six. Puckett drove in a run in the first inning with a triple, then made an amazing leaping catch in the 3rd, and finally won the game for Minnesota in the 11th. With the Twins trailing 3 games to 2 and the score tied 1-1 in the 11th inning, Puckett hit a walk-off home run in the inning's first at bat to force game seven, simply amazing.
On October 15, 1946, Enos Slaughter put on his now-famous “mad dash” from first to home on a double hit by Harry Walker. This led the Cardinals to a 4-3, Game Seven World Series victory over Boston at St. Louis.
