1951 NY Giants & Brooklyn Dodgers Signed Bat Willie Mays Shot Heard 'Round World
The 1951 MLB season featured one of the most iconic moments in the history of the sport, delivered by New York Giants outfielder Bobby Thomson. The Giants engineered a furious comeback at the end of the regular season to overcome a 13 ½ game deficit against the Brooklyn Dodgers. Thomson ended the pennant-deciding three game playoff against the Dodgers with a dramatic walk off home run against Dodgers hurler Ralph Branca, sending the Giants to the World Series.
