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 Thomson.    

Thomson was a very good player:   264 HR and 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.

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

And the greatest radio baseball call ever!

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