VIDEOS: Memorable MLB postseason celebrations

Some of baseball's most enduring October memories are punctuated by jubilant celebrations. Take a look back at some of the most memorable expressions of joy in Major League Baseball's postseason by players and teams after the final out.

2004 Boston Red Sox

It was a celebration 86 years in the making. When closer Keith Foulke grabbed Edgar Renteria's grounder back to the mound and flipped it to first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz, long-suffering Red Sox fans could rejoice in the franchise's first world championship since 1918.

2003 New York Yankees

Aaron Boone (or as he's known in Boston, "Aaron Bleepin' Boone") homered on Tim Wakefield's first pitch in the bottom of the 11th inning in Game 7 of the American League Championship Series to send the Yankees to the World Series. Boone punctuated his home run trot by leaping on home plate while being mobbed by his teammates, and Yankees closer Mariano Rivera -- who was named the ALCS MVP -- is remembered for running to the mound and collapsing on it in joy.

1993 Toronto Blue Jays

"Touch 'em all, Joe." One of the most memorable home runs in baseball history came off the bat of Joe Carter, who ended Game 6 of the 1993 World Series with a three-run shot to give Toronto an 8-6 win to retain their world championship. Carter's joyful trip around the bases, punctuated by several leaps between first and second base, has become an enduring image of the Fall Classic.

1988 Los Angeles Dodgers

It didn't win the World Series for the Dodgers, but Kirk Gibson's pinch-hit home run off Dennis Ecklersley in the ninth inning of Game 1 provided another memorable October image. Who can forget a hobbled Gibson limping around the bases, pumping his fist at second, while his teammates mobbed home plate in the background?

1986 New York Mets

The 1986 World Series is most remembered for Bill Buckner's error at first base in Game 6. But the next night, Mets reliever Jesse Orosco struck out Red Sox second baseman Marty Barrett to give New York its second world title. Orosco flung his glove high in the air and bear hugged catcher Gary Carter before the two were buried in a pile of celebrating teammates.

1960 Pittsburgh Pirates

The only World Series to end with a walk-off home run in Game 7, the 1960 Fall Classic will forever be remembered for Bill Mazeroski's heroics in the bottom of the ninth inning of Pittsburgh's 10-9 win over the Yankees. As Mazeroski circled the bases, waving his cap wildly, fans began streaming out of the stands and accompanied him from third base to a mob scene at home plate.

1956 New York Yankees

The only perfect game in World Series history is remembered for Yankees catcher Yogi Berra sprinting from behind home plate and leaping into the arms of Don Larsen after Larsen struck out Brooklyn's Dale Mitchell to finish a 2-0 win in Game 5.
