Branca's Pitch DVD
Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher Ralph Branca has gone down in sports history as the man who gave up the "shot heard 'round the world," the 1951 pennant-winning home run to New York Giants outfielder Bobby Thomson. In this nostalgic documentary, Branca looks back on his years alongside Dodgers teammates Robinson, Reese, and Snider; his "scapegoat" role in one of baseball's most famous moments; and the claim that the Giants used telescopes and spies in the stands to steal signs. 87 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.
