Ralph Branca's Moment in Time
Friday, September 23, 2011
Ralph Branca is best known for throwing the pitch that resulted in Bobby Thomson’s “Shot Heard ’Round the World,” the historic home run that capped an incredible comeback and won the pennant for the New York Giants in 1951. A Moment in Time details his remarkable story of a man who could have been destroyed by a very public professional embarrassment—but wasn’t. He discusses the golden era of baseball and the legendary players such as Jackie Robinson, Pee Wee Reese, Gil Hodges, Leo Durocher, Branch Rickey, and Walter O’Malley.
