On this day 20 years ago, the 1996 Yankees completed their journey to the top of baseball by defeating the Atlanta Braves to win Game 6 of the World Series. Future manager Joe Girardi had the decisive hit, a booming RBI triple against his former Cubs teammate Greg Maddux. When Charlie Hayes squeezed the foul ball off Wolrd Series MVP John Wetteland that finished the job, Yankee Stadium went crazy. What a team.
