The Shot Heard Round the World

The Shot heard round the world happened on October 4th as part of the 1951 National League pennant. Outfield Bobby Thompson hit the walk off home run to give the New York Giants (later moved to San Francisco) the victory off of Brooklyn Dodgers (later moving to LA) pitcher Ralph Branca.  Called the shot heard round the world, the radio broadcasters chant: “The Giants win the Pennant, The Giants win the Pennant” became part of broadcasting history and a cultural touch tone.
