This Week In Baseball History

Oct 8, 2021

Bobby Thomson and Ralph Branca became inextricably linked 70 years ago this week when the former turned around a fastball from the latter and hit a three run walkoff homer that completed a Cinderella comeback to the game and season, and gave the Giants the 1951 National League pennant. Mike and Bill look back at both men, their lives, and the moment that they shared, including whether Thomson came by his homer fairly. Plus, happy birthday to Bob Skinner and Wally Moses!
