A couple of months ago I read an excellent book titled Miracle Ball. the author Brian Biegel tries to track down Bobby Thomson's home run ball. He establishes an interesting (although unproven) theory about who got the ball and why it remained a secret. I highly recommend it.

He had a great run, in this game and in life!

It is reported that Bobby Thomson died on August 16, 2010 at his home in Georgia. He was 86 years old.

Who would have thought that just six years later both the Giants and Dodgers would leave town?

People forget that Bobby Thomson personally redeemed himself in this game. Earlier in that game Thomson had made an error and committed a ridiculous baserunning gaffe that took the Giants out of an inning.
