Publisher Description

The Dodgers-Giants rivalry is the longest-standing rivalry in baseball history—a feud that began in the late nineteenth century when both clubs were based in New York City. Then, on October 3, 1951, Bobby Thomson’s “shot heard around the world” ended their pennant race—one of the most dramatic ever. Interviews, contemporary newspaper articles, and memoirs of participants are used to describe the intense rivalry and provide a day-by-day look at the Giants’ pennant run, including a fascinating examination of the strategy of the final game.
