On October 3, 1951, the New York Giants' Bobby Thomson hit a dramatic ninth inning game-winning home run off the Brooklyn Dodgers' Ralph Branca at the Polo Grounds in the decisive third game of a three-game playoff to win the National League pennant. It would be known in baseball lore as the "Shot Heard 'Round the World." The game-the first ever televised nationally-was seen by millions of viewers across America and heard on radio by millions more, including thousands of American servicemen stationed in Korea, listening on Armed Forces Radio.
