We remember Bobby Thomson (1923-2010)



Bobby Thomson was born in Scotland on this day in 1923.   A few years ago, Bill Katz of URGENT AGENDA alerted me to the passing of Bobby Thompson.    Bill was a Dodgers' fan and naturally did not enjoy this moment.


Bobby Thompson was a very good player.   He hit 264 HR and was one of the NL's best power hitters of the early 1950s! (averaged 102 RBI over a five-year stretch with the Giants from 1949-53)

However, he will always be remembered for hitting the greatest home run in baseball history.


I guess that it was "a perfect storm" in New York that day!

The Dodgers-Giants rivalry!

A pennant clinching home run by a Giants team that was 14 games out in June!

And the greatest radio baseball call ever!

Wouldn't you love "a time tunnel" and a trip to The Polo Grounds that day?


Rest in peace Bobby Thompson! You gave us one of the greatest baseball moment ever!
