Phillies: Top Ten Players From 1993 NL Championship Team
4. Mitch Williams, Closer
Known as the “Wild Thing”, Williams was in his third season as closer for the Phillies. While not always pretty, Williams saved 43 games and pitched to a 3.34 ERA. Although many mostly remember him from giving up the World Series deciding home run to Joe Carter, Williams won two and saved two in the NLCS against the Braves. Sadly, Williams was never the same pitcher following the World Series. He retired in 1997 after unsuccessful stints with the Astros, Angels and Royals.
3. Curt Schilling, SP
Although he pitched to a relatively mediocre 4.02 ERA, Schilling was tied for the team lead in wins with 16. He was a workhorse, logging 233 1/3 innings, striking out 186. Schilling was also the MVP of the 1993 NL Championship series.
Schilling has three consecutive All-Star seasons with the Phillies from 1997-1999, striking out 300 more two straight seasons. Schilling is now a member of the Phillies Wall of Fame and has a solid chance of making the Hall of Fame.
