As the playoffs approach I have debated this with friends at work for a couple of years now who had the best World Series home run celebration, here are some choices if I miss one feel free to vote for one of yours

1960 Pirates Bill Mazerowski WS Walk off
1975 Red Sox Carlton Fisk Game 6 Walk off
1987 Twins Kent Hrbek Game 6 Grand Slam
1988 Dodgers Kirk Gibson Game 1 Walk off
1991 Twins Kirby Puckett Game 6 Walk off
1993 Blue Jays Joe Carter WS Walk off
2001 Yankees Derek Jeter Game 4 Walk off
2011 Cardinals David Freese Game 6 Walk off

Now remember, think of the celebration that came with the homer.

My vote

Kirby Puckett...for a couple of reasons. Obviously he was/is my favorite player, but having watched every pitch of every inning of every game of this WS and being so invested in the results this was #1 of me.

then probably Gibby, Hrbie, and Fisk/Carter to round out the top 5

I don't know about the best celebration but I rate Maz's 1960 home run as the greatest in WS history when you take everything into consideration.

How can you leave out the ailing Kirk Gibson's 9th inning HR off A's Eckersley in Game 1 of the '88 W.S. Gibson's was so beleaguered by injuries to both legs that he wasn't even announced in the line-up. The battle between Eckersley and Gibson with 2 outs & bottom of the 9th inning (Mike Davis representing the tying run on 2nd) took a full six minutes to play out....
