Thomson, hit famous ’51 playoff homer, dies
Okay, this is not a baseball blog, but I would be severely remiss in not posting about this.
Though I was not alive at the time, the Home Run and call by Russ Hodges are a classic.
As a side note, I got an “A” in a public speaking class in high school when my topic was about famous sport moments. The teacher was a huge Giants fan and I ended my speech talking about Bobby Thompson’s home run and played the Russ Hodges call. My teacher was so thrilled when he heard “The Giants Won The Pennant” repeated over and over again.
God Bless his family and friends during this difficult time.
