Bobby Thomson

In October of 1951, Bobby Thomson of The New York Giants hit one of the most dramatic home runs in baseball history.  He passed away on Monday, at 86.


Below is a YouTube video of Thomson's home run. (The audio recording accompanying the film, however, is actually from the radio.  It is the famous call by Russ Hodges, who was announcing the game on New York City radio station WMCA.)
