Bobby Thomson hits into the lower deck of the left field stands and they're going crazy! Yaaaaho-o-o-o!" Ross Hodges, October 3, 1951. At 3:58 p.m. EDT, on a dusky autumn afternoon at the Polo Grounds in New York City, Bobby Thomson swung at a fastball delivered by Brooklyn Dodger pitcher Ralph Blanca and hit a home run that not only captured the National League pennant for the Giants but instantly became immortalizes as baseball's legendary "The Shot Heard Round the World." Now, for the first time, Bobby Thomson tells the complete story of the amazing 1951 National League season and the home run that won it all. In his own words, together with the reflections of such Dodger and Giant greats as Alvin Dark, Monty Irvin, Whitely Lockman, Duke Snider, Pee Wee Reece, and Don Newcombe, here is the dramatic story of an underdog Giant team that trailed the Dodgers by 13½ games in mid-August, and came from behind to end the season in a tie for first place. It would all come down to the last half of the last inning of the last game of the playoffs when Bobby Thomson walked to the plate with the words of Giant manager Leo Durocher ringing in his ears, "Bobby, if you ever hit one, hit one now." "The Giant Win the Pennant! The Giants Win the Pennant!" is the unforgettable story of a man , an event, a pennant race and a golden era of baseball that will be forever framed in the history of the national pastime. Sports.
