Product Overview

He hit the most famous home run in baseball history for the New York Giants, the "Shot Heard 'round the World," in the third game of the 1951 playoff against the Brooklyn Dodgers. Many have called it baseball's single greatest moment. With one swing on a gray October afternoon almost 60 years ago, Bobby Thomson etched his name in baseball lore forever and proved he is a man who can deliver when the chips are down. And now Bobby Thomson delivers again in the clutch. In his new book, Few and Chosen: Defining Giants Greatness Across the Eras, Thomson selects his all-time Giants team, five players at each position plus the top five managers, covering the team's more than 100-year history in two cities, New York and San Francisco, on two coasts. Born in Glasgow, Scotland, raised on New York's Staten Island, Thomson has been following Giants baseball as man and boy for more than 70 years and is eminently qualified for so daunting a task. As a boy, he saw Bill Terry and Carl Hubbell. As a man, he played for managers Mel Ott and Leo Durocher and alongside Willie Mays, Monte Irvin, Ernie Lombardi, Sal Maglie, and Alvin Dark. As a result, no one is better qualified to rate and compare players from different eras playing for one of the most storied franchises in baseball history.
