Dusty Rhodes
Pinch Hitter, New York Giants
1954 World Series, Game 1

Willie Mays' catch makes for better TV, but the Giants wouldn't have won Game 1 without Rhodes' pinch-hit, three-run home run in the bottom of the 10th. Rhodes was also the hitting star in Game 2, with another home run off Early Wynn.
