From the great Brooklyn Dodger pitcher Ralph Branca who gave up Bobby Thomson''s "Shot Heard ''Round the World," comes an inspiring memoir that captures the golden era of baseball and offers a lesson in grace, character, and perseverance.
From the Publisher:
The Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher best known for throwing the pitch that culminated in Bobby Thomson's "Shot Heard 'Round the World" traces the story of his career from his emergence as a promising young star to his Dodgers dominance at the end of the 1940s.
Annotation:
Anniversaries commemorating a single moment are rare; in the world of sports, few are more widely known than the "Shot Heard 'Round the World": the game-winning home run hit by Bobby Thompson of the NY Giants to claim the 1951 pennant over arch rival Brooklyn Dodgers. Now Ralph Branca, the man who hurled that fateful pitch, tells his story, and there is not a word of blame or bitterness about the moment that would come to dominate the public's interest in him once a year, every year. His memoir offers a personal story as well as a glimpse into the center of the baseball universe of the 1940s and '50s, when three New York baseball teams provided endless drama for both local and national consumption, and Branca's teammantes included Jackie Robinson and PeeWee Reese. Branca was a class act then and has remained one ever since.
