Joe Carter

Joe Carter participated in the Home Run Derby in 1991, 1992, and 1996— seasons whose first half were his best, fifth-best, and second-best. To answer their question whether a Home Run Derby curse exists, McCollum and Jaiclin looked at his three seasons whose second half were Carter’s best, fifth-best, and second-best.
