Summary In 1951, Ralph Branca became a legendary figure in baseball history when the Brooklyn Dodgers lost the National League pennant to the New York Giants by giving up the game-winning homerun termed "The Shot Heard Round the World." Jeered and labeled a scapegoat for the rest of his life, he never reclaimed his career. Follow Branca's journey to pen a memoir that tells his side of the story, to try and restore his fascinating, yet overlooked legacy in baseball's Golden Age of the '40s and '50s.
